April 23, 2021 – The City of Midland invites the public to provide input on a draft sewer improvement plan via a new topic launched on the City’s online public engagement platform, E-CityHall.

Following the approval of Concept 5 sewer improvements by the Midland City Council in March 2021, City Wastewaster staff recommended that draft plans for work be submitted to EGLE to seek project plan approval and open the door for possible low-interest loans to fund the improvements through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and the Strategic Water Quality Initiatives Fund. At the May 24, 2021 City Council meeting, the Midland City Council will hold a public hearing to review and approve the proposed project plan being submitted to EGLE. This hearing will only approve the project plan and its submission and will not approve the execution of the project or funding.

Ahead of this public hearing, the public is encouraged to review the draft plan and provide input. Public comment on the draft plan will be collected via E-CityHall at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/concept5plan through Monday, May 24 at 4 p.m. Please note: Due to the size of the project plan document, the file may take time to download on slower internet connections. Residents without internet access or the ability to review the digital plan can find a physical copy of the plan on file at the City Clerk’s office located inside the first floor of City Hall.

In addition to E-CityHall, residents may also provide public comment on the plan by submitting written comments via email to cityhall@midland-mi.org or postal mail to City Manager’s Office, 333 W. Ellsworth Street, Midland, MI 4864 by Monday, May 24 at 4 p.m., or by speaking during the public hearing on Monday, May 24.
