CASEVILLE - Plans are for the parking lot at the Caseville municipal building to be redone. The City is accepting bids for replacement of existing asphalt with concrete. It was noted during the meeting the cost will be split with Caseville Township.

Plans for renovations by the breakwater are ready to go, but funds are pending state approval. During the meeting, City of Caseville Clerk Jamie Learman reported the bill had passed the Senate and moved to the House. If approved, it would go to Gov. Snyder for his signature. Learman said Snyder has expressed his favor for the legislation. Learman said any work would be started after ‘Cheeseburger.’

Although the board approved request of the Chamber for the July 3 fireworks, concerned was expressed over cleanup and that the board would be checking the area the following morning. Rain date is July 5.

During the meeting, Learman reported that U.S. Fish & Wildlife Private Lands Biologist Michelle Vander Haar was in Caseville recently to view results of efforts to control invasive phragmites. Learman said that Vander Haar seemed pleased.

Also during the meeting, the board and those in the audience loudly applauded the efforts of Mike Smith and Lou Johnson for their work cleaning the parks by the U.S. Post Office, the Chamber of Commerce building and down the hill on County Road.

In business matters, the board adopted the FY18 budget and set the General Operating millage at 16.0750 and accepted the DDA FY18 budget and set the DDA General Operation millage at 1.4326 mils.
