[ARCHIVED] Submit Requests for Public Improvements by November 1

October 3, 2014 – It is that time of year again – time to request public water and sewer service and paving of gravel streets in city of Midland locations that currently do not have these amenities.

If there is a public improvement project of this nature that you would like considered, Midland residents may submit a written request detailing the project to the City of Midland’s Engineering Department, 333 W. Ellsworth, Midland, MI 48640. Requests must be postmarked on or before November 1, 2014.

Once received, the Engineering Department estimates the cost for each requested project and prioritizes the list according to project feasibility and available funding. The list is then presented to Midland City Council at a regular meeting in January. Council then determines which projects receive highest priority and allocates funding for those projects in the next fiscal year budget.

The City’s special assessment process is used to finance these improvements. Adjacent property owners that benefit from the improvement primarily pay the cost of the project. The City may also participate in project costs for certain items depending on the type of project.

This year, due to expected budget constraints, very limited funding will be available for special assessment participation by the City. Also, project requests that require significant City participation will not be considered unless the developer proposes to finance the project initially by participating in the advance payment process.

Construction of approved projects will take place in the 2015-2016 fiscal year, which begins July 1, 2015.

Requests for sidewalk improvements will be received by the City Council in February 2015. Routine street or sidewalk maintenance requests may be submitted to the Engineering Department at any time during the year.
