Ever since the City switched (mostly) from conrete fixes instead of asphalt for side streets, I think we have made great progress on fixing the damn roads. And I mean fixing the roads in the LONG TERM. Ashpalt provides a quick fix, but for the City Council to be back at it again 15 years later when the road starts falling apart and needs a full fix again. With concrete we can fix a little at a time for a smaller amount of money, and the materal lasts much longer.
Have you always wanted a tree in front of your house? The boulevard is a perfect place for one, and the City has put together a set of nine trees that work best depending on the amount of space available. John Kraus, a fellow of the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan working for the City of Eastpointe, interviewed with the Macomb Daily, and is hitting the ground running to get trees planted.
Today marks Nine Years since I was appointed to City Council in 2014 after the death of Councilman Bill Sweeney. Bill was a huge supporter of sports & recreation in the community, and the City named the sled hill at Spindler Park after him.
Since then, I believe we have made a lot of strides in our parks. This year we had a duo of innovative changes at Spindler Park: a story walk, and permanent corn hole boards. Many other positive changes have been made over the recent years also, not only at Spindler Park, but also at Kennedy Park, Memorial Park, Goetz Park, Roxana Park, and others. This past year we made an awesome change at Rein Park, creating a walking path around the outside of the park, along with benches and garbage cans.
As we did last year, shown is the fiscal year 2023-2024 water bill explained. The rates have been updated.
