City Council Update
Highlights from City Council Meeting, December 4, 2017
Snow removal contract awarded – City Council approved a
contract with Premium Lawn Solutions, of Ann Arbor, for $8,440 to clear
14 City-owned lots during snow events of at least four inches. The cost
covers four snowfalls. Additional snow plowing will be charged at $2,105
per event. This price holds for the duration of the three-year contract.
Transportation for ski club approved – The Parks
and Recreation Dept. won City Council approval to continue using Trinity
Transportation to transport 200 middle school and high school students
from the Recreation Center at Hillside to the Mount Brighton Ski Area
for the Ski and Snowboard Club’s weekly trips. The new three-year
contract will charge $599 per motor coach in the first year, $617 in the
second year and $635 in the third. There is also a $100 cancellation fee
and $250 turn-around fee.
Website redesign contract
approved – The City of Northville’s website will be redesigned
using the services of Civic Live, of Kansas City, MO. City Council
approved a contract for $14,400 with a $2,000 onsite training component.
The City’s website is at least 10 years old and will be updated using
responsive design, flexible forms, larger photos and an improved
navigation system. Staff will be trained in using a content management
system, which will save costs by not having to outsource copy placement
and layout changes.
Easement amendment for new
restaurant – City County approved easement changes that will
allow Campus & Associates, the new owners of 158-160 E. Main St., to
temporarily remove the City-owned cables that are affixed to the west
wall facing Town Square so they can add windows and a balcony door. The
building is being renovated to open as a Sicilian restaurant. The owners
will reinstall cables after the work is finished – all done at their own
expense. In the spring, the owners will replant ivy on that wall. In
addition, a taller fence will replace an existing fence in the back of
the restaurant. The Historic District Commission (HDC) approved the
project on Oct. 18 and the owners expect final approval from the
Planning Commission at its Dec. 5 meeting.
