Spring Clean-up Reminders
This is the time of year many people clean their yards and trim back bushes and trees. Here are some reminders about our collection of this waste:
-Brush and bags (for grass clippings and leaves) are collected weekly- generally on Mondays
-We do not pick up loose leaves or grass clippings in the spring or summer- they need to be placed in bags or boxes (no heavier than 50 pounds)
-We do NOT pick up junk, trash, or building supplies.
-You can have a city truck parked at your house and place any brush, loose leaves, grass, etc in it and we'll drive it away at no charge. Call our office for information 369-7334.
2015/2016 Matteson Street Improvement Project
During 2015/2016, Matteson Street will see various improvements. Currently, engineers for the City are conducting a survey and tests on the street, the sidewalks, water mains, sewer mains, and storm sewer lines within the area of the street from north City limits to the south City limits.
Early in the spring of 2016, we anticipate upgrading a section of 4-inch water main to 8-inch between Grant Street and Rudd Street. We also plan to upgrade water 4-inch water mains under Rudd Street (between Walker and Matteson) and W. Corey (between Walker and Matteson) to 6-inch mains. This will improve water flow, reliability, and aid fire protection. Depending on tests of sewer and storm sewer lines, improvements to those systems may be conducted at the same time.
Once the underground work is complete, Matteson Street will be milled and resurfaced in its entirety. This work will occur in the spring of 2016.
There will be no debt associated with this project and it is funded in part by an MDOT grant received by the City of Bronson. As we have updates, they will be posted here.
