PEASLEY PARK RENOVATION COMPLETE
Peasley Park (on Coolidge between Balfour and Winchester) has been completely renovated and is now open for play!  Please be mindful that the straw covering the open area is to protect the grass seed and should be avoided.  The new play area, walkway and benches and tables are ready for all to enjoy!
LONG-TERM ROAD IMPROVEMENT STRATEGY UPDATE
The City's Long Term Budget & Planning Committee provided several recommendations to the City Commission to address the City's long-term financial health.  The recommended road improvement strategy combines road reconstruction and a more aggressive maintenance schedule to extend the useful life of our roads.  One approach to pay for the new road strategy is to ask voters for a millage to fund the annual legacy public safety pension obligation.  This would allow funds normally used for the pension obligation to be redirected to the new road strategy.  During the November 19th City Commission meeting, the Commission approved the language for the pension millage for placement on the March 2020 ballot. More information on the proposed public safety pension millage and road strategy will be available shortly.
CITY COMMISSION APPROVES NOTICE OF INTENT RESOLUTION FOR SALE OF INFRASTRUCTURE BONDS

The City is preparing to sell bonds for the last phase of the sewer repair project and for a road reconstruction project if the Public Act 345 ballot initiative is approved in March 2020. If the Public Act 345 millage is not approved, the City is not obligated to sell the road project bonds and can proceed with just the sewer project bonds.

 

Because the bonds for both projects will be Capital Improvement bonds, the City must give the voters a referendum right on the issuance of the bonds. The bonds can be issued without a vote unless a petition is filed within 45 days of the Notice publication.

 

The City Commission approved the Notice of Intent Resolution for General Obligation Capital Improvement Bonds at the December 3, 2019 meeting.  A copy  of the resolution and the Notice of Intent publication are posted on the City's website.
