The City of Mackinac Island will hold a public meeting on the proposed Water System Improvements projects for the purpose of receiving comments from interested persons.

The meeting will be held on April 4, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. during a special Department of Public Works Board Meeting.

The purpose of the proposed projects is to:

Replace an existing main along Cadotte Avenue from 5th Street, to the airport, and back around to Forest Drive.
Rehabilitate two valve vaults.
Install a tank mixer in the Lower Reservoir.
Replace aging equipment on the membrane filtration skids in the treatment plant.

There are no expected negative long-term impacts associated with the proposed improvements.

The estimated cost to users for the proposed project would be approximately $533 per year.
