Sidewalk Trails

July 30, 2009 // 0 Comments

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.
