UNDATED (WHTC) - It will be a busy meeting Monday along the Lakeshore, beginning with the 4:30 PM Holland BPW Board session that includes reimbursing the city around 162 thousand dollars for the water and sewer work that is ongoing along Washington Avenue from 32nd Street to Matt Urban Drive. This evening, no action is slated, but Zeeland City Council members will have hydrologist Steve Elliott on hand during a work-study session prior to the bi-weekly business meeting. He will go over issues involving last year’s reconstruction of Division Street between Main Avenue and Rich Street. About two dozen residents claim that the work raised the water table in the area, which led to massive basement flooding during last month’s storms.
It’s the third Monday evening of the month, which means that it’s school board meeting time across the Lakeshore. For the panels in Saugatuck and Zeeland, they will be hearing from pleased superintendents Rolfe Timmerman and Cal DeKuiper, respectively, about successful millage votes two weeks ago. In Saugatuck, plans are being made to upgrade facilities and classroom technology, along with building up the sinking fund. Board members in those two districts, along with Holland, West Ottawa and Hamilton, will also all be apprised of ongoing state budget talks involving educational funding during tonight’s meetings.
