Council decisions

Headline News

Last night, the Village Council made several important, often difficult decisions. Here is a summary of only the major ones. Note that details will follow, some here and some in local newspapers.

  • Accepted Harbor Commissions proposal for building permanent docks in the Upper Harbor to the west of the U.S. 31 bridge, with the following changes/clarifications:

1. Proper permits will be sought to allow the Village to build public docks on
    both sides of the bridge, should the Village decide to do so.

2. Signs stating permitted hours of use and length of stays will be purchased
    for use on both sides of the bridge.

  • Purchasing property at 215 Dexter Street (old marina in the upper harbor). After noting that the previous owner, Johann Bech, still had personal property on site, Council granted 30 days of special, supervised access for him to remove his property.
  • Regarding a complaint by a property owner that blown sand on his Spruce Street property was caused by Village dumping of sand on Memorial Park beach, Council decided to keep existing policies in place: removing sand from roads and right-of-ways but not from private property.
