About two million dollars of street and parking lot projects and other improvements were approved Monday night during the Port Huron City Council’s regular meeting. The largest project totaling $858 thousand will involve realigning the water-main at Beers and Michigan Street, along with rebuilding the pavement. City Engineer Lennie Naeyaert says the plan is part of a larger M-DOT project to reconstruct Gleenwood Avenue. The council also approved the resurfacing of the north parking lot at the Municipal Office Center. Apparently the Police Department, which is located below the parking lot, was having some water issues, says Mayor Pro-Tem Sherry Archibald. Along with the road and parking lot projects approved Monday night, the council also approved an agreement with DTE to upgrade the city’s lighting to L.E.D lights. About 2300 street lights will be replaced in the city says City Manager James Freed. Port Huron will see annual savings of $300 thousand once the project is complete. The council also accepted a grant from the Community Foundation of St. Clair County that will be used to install two wheelchair swings at Lakeside and Pine Grove Parks. Blight was also on the council’s agenda as they heard an update on city’s Code Enforcement Unit from Port Huron Police Lt. Marcy Kuehn. The number of complaints are down, as are tickets issued says Kuehn. A majority of the violations issued were for residents using their yards for storage and grass/weed violations. Most violations were dismissed after property owners resolved the issues. During her presentation to the council it was noted that Detroit, which has a major blight problem, is reaching out to Port Huron to see what we are doing to get our blight problem under control.
