Laketon Avenue Realignment between Seaway & Temple.

dedicated right turn lane. Project would start after Labor Day and be completed mid November.
Sunday Morning Liquor Sales.
Mayor Warmington explained the new law that was passed by the Legislature allowing the sale
of liquor on Sunday morning starting at 7:00 a.m. If the City wants to opt out and prohibit
Sunday sales, then we need to notify the Michigan Liquor Control Commission. We have no
issues, no action required.
DNR/Army Corps Permits.
Discussion on whether we should ask the DNR to hold a public hearing if there are issues
concerning the citizens. Would like the Neighborhood Associations notified when we get a
notice. Tony Kleibecker, Public Safety Director, stated he would forward the notices to the
correct Neighborhood President.
