Nautical City News

This is a special edition of the Nautical City News.  Look for a full newsletter in the next edition.

Mayor’s Message: Thanks to all the citizens of Rogers City for putting up with the many challenges of the USDA construction projects.  Many of you put up with torn up streets, discolored water, and possibly other issues.  The good news is that most all the street work has been completed; although, some clean up items are still in progress.

Other, project work is still on going at the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP), new water tower, and new well drilling efforts. The WWTP project will most likely continue into next year, but it has remained in continuous operation during the construction.  The WWTP continues to meet all regulations and standards.  The improvements will make the WWTP more energy efficient and reliable.

The new water tower is structurally completed; however, it is not yet in operation.  Electrical system installation was delayed due to Consumers Energy power supply issues.  The new water tower is expected to be in operation by the end of the year.

The well drilling going on in the Seagull Point Park area will result in higher quality drinking water for all.  A primary and a test well have been successfully drilled with preliminary water test results positive.  A third well is going to begin drilling soon.

Again, I want to thank each of you for your patience with these large and complex projects.  They will make Rogers City a better place to live for decades to come.
