Scottville commission expected to approve North Main Street paving, budget, 5K run

May 5, 2014

SCOTTVILLE — The Scottville City Commission meets this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. for its regular meeting. The agenda includes a request from City Manager Amy Williams for the commission to approve patch paving the areas of North Main Street that were torn apart over the winter due to water main leaks. Because the quote from Reith Riley came above the manager’s allowable $2,000 spending limit, the city commission is required to vote on approving the $3,025 cost.

“North Main Street is highly traveled and the sooner we get the repairs done the better, plus our continuing maintenance of the street right now is costing us a fair amount of money as we need to fill the holes every few days,” Williams wrote to the commission in a pre-meeting memo.

The commission will also hold a first reading to amend the traffic schedule ordinance. The amendment will allow no parking signs to be placed in the grass area on West First Street, which is mainly a railroad right-of-way.

The commission is also expected to approve a request from Covenant Christian School of Amber Township to hold a 5K run fundraiser in the city on Friday, May 16 at 6 p.m.

Another new part-time police officer, Scott Fessenden, will be sworn in during Monday’s meeting. Fessenden has worked part-time for the Mason County Sheriff’s Office as a marine patrol officer.

City commission is also expected to approve the 2014-2015 budget which is for 16.7 operating mills and 2.6 refuse mills.
