New rules adopted by the State of Michigan require the City to remove and replace lead service lines (the pipes that run from the water main to the meter inside your house) at public cost. Please refer to the attached one-page overview of the project that was included in the January edition of the Ridger.
Most of the City’s water mains are also approaching 100 years old and are due for replacement. We will review our plan for replacing the City’s entire water system infrastructure over the next 30 years, including options for how to pay for these improvements. The cost to complete these improvements will require water rate and/or property tax increases, as will be discussed at the Town Hall meeting. The City Commission is seeking your input on how you would prefer these costs to be handled.
The meeting will be held via Zoom videoconference. It will also be broadcast live on the City’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/PleasantRidgeCity and on public access television stations. The meeting will be recorded and made available for viewing on the City website and YouTube channel after the meeting.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this or any other topic please contact Jim Breuckman, City Manager at 248-541-2901 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
