Cordes Excavating appears to be the low qualifying bidder, based on bids recieved and publiclly opened today. The Cordes bid was $256,679.99. Beacon Procusts is manufacturing the state-of-the-art lamps and poles we Cordes will install. Fleis and VandenBrink Engineering Inc. performed the design and detailed engineering for the project. Weather permitting, the work will be done before winter.

Your comments on this project are always welcome.

Greetings! I've went to the Michigan Municipal League (MML) Annual Conference and promptly got sick with the flu. I've been out of action for over a week. Now, I'm back and working to "get the word" out.

Rogers City will be doing water main flushing beginning October 4, 2009 through November 5, 2009. The flushing will take place between 10:00 pm and 7:00 am to reduce the possibility of causing inconviences for you, our customers. This flushing may impact many customers with discoloration and possibly iron particles in the water. Please check the water from your tap before doing laundry, as this may reduce any staining to your clothes.

If you have questions, please call City Hall at 734-2191. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

I'll post more information on this blog about the MML Convention and other events in Rogers City soon. So, go enjoy Home Coming...go forth to victory Might Hurons!
