[ARCHIVED] Jackson City Council May 11, 2021 Virtual Meeting

Jackson City Council May 11 virtual meeting


The Jackson City Council held a virtual meeting on Tuesday, May 11. A recording of the meeting is available on this page. Here are highlights from the meeting: 

  • The first social district permits were approved by the City Council. The Grand River Brewery and Veritas Restaurant now need State of Michigan approval before they are allowed to serve alcoholic drinks in the City’s new social district in Downtown Jackson. 
  • Four bridges in the City are getting repairs. The council approved a contract with MDOT to do structural repairs to bridges on Denton Road, Trail Street, North Street and Mechanic Street.
  • A hearing was held regarding improvements to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Following the hearing, the City Council approved a resolution that supports the City applying for a State of Michigan loan to fund $6 million in improvements to the wastewater plant. This could bring a 4% sewer rate increase to pay for the loan.
  • A presentation was given to the City Council on a water and sewer rate study. A projected $120 million is needed to fund lead water service line replacements, water plant upgrades, and to make up for lost revenue. This could bring a 12% water rate increase. The council will consider rate increases at future meetings.
  • The City Council approved a special assessment for residents on Morrell Street to partially fund water main and street reconstruction from Greenwood Avenue to MLK Drive.
  • The City Council voted to postpone the first vote on the City’s proposed Neighborhood Association Ordinance. 

The next City Council meeting is happening Tuesday, May 25.
