NEW TRAILS PROPOSED—Cannon Township Board members (l–r) Trustee Dick Davies, Trustee Deb Diepenhorst, Clerk Bonnie Blackledge, Supervisor Peter MacGregor, Trustee Rob McBrien and Trustee Steve Grimm decide to hear more about the proposed non-motorized sidewalks/trails.

Meeting set August 6 for more information

by MITCH HARVATIN

Cannon Township officials decided Monday night that they want to hear more about the proposal of putting two non-motorized sidewalks/trails starting at Myers Lake toward Cannon Farms and along M-44 near Bostwick Lake.

Both projects would feature poles (railings) and hydrants. The contractor would also design the trail so it doesn’t draw puddles when it rains for a long period of time.

The Myers Lake proposal is estimated to cost $12,100. The Bostwick Lake project is estimated to cost around $22,100.

Township Clerk Bonnie Blackledge is for the project, but Township Trustee Steve Grimm said, “It’s a lot of money for a straight sidewalk.”

Township Supervisor Peter MacGregor stepped in and said that the construction workers “will have to move a green box and a telephone pole.”

Blackledge will hold an informational meeting for anyone who would like more information about these two projects on August 6 at 5:30 p.m. at the Cannon Township offices, 6878 Belding Road. The engineer of the project will also attend the meeting.
