City elected officials and staff have been pleased at the interest shown by attendance at the first two three community conversations being held to inform voters about the neighborhood street-repair millage proposal that is on the Nov. 2 ballot.
The next meeting is at 6 p.m. on Thursday in the Van Gilder Room of the Fenton Community and Cultural Center.
City Manager Lynn Markland, pictured at top, will give an overview of the program, including the unique challenges of funding neighborhood street repairs as a municipal government in Michigan, while city staff will help answer questions about the condition of the city’s local streets (see map at bottom), how water and sewer repairs would be handled (by using funding already designated for that) and more.
We’ve updated the Q&A we’ve created with questions received at the meeting. We’ll continue to update as we get more questions and information.
