Public 51, Public Acts of 1951 mandates that each incorporated village to which funds are returned designate a single administrator, known as the Street Administrator. The Street Administrator is responsible for street improvements, maintenance, and traffic operations work, and the development, construction, or repair of off-street parking facilities and construction or repair of street lighting for 6.9 miles of village streets. A driveway permit is required if any portion is located in the right-of-way (sidewalk/approach).
Mr. Erik Bitely is the designated Street Administrator for the village.
He can be contacted with any concerns or questions at:
What to do with yard waste is the number one question we get in the Spring and Summer. The Village will pick up some brush and grass clippings free of charge. The Yard Waste Policy is available on the website or by contacting the Village Office..
This service does not include trees that you have taken down or major trimming. The Village has a secured area where you can dump tree debris. Contact the DPW Manager at 616-293-0693 to make arrangements to drop off your debris.
Other issues: Before planting trees and bushes or installing sprinkler heads please make sure they are on your property and not in the Village right-of-way.
