A project informational meeting for the 2016/17 Storm Water Erosion Control Program (South Skunk River) will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 13, in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 515 Clark Ave. The meeting will outline the intent and scope of the project, as well as the construction schedule and temporary impacts to the trail along the project.
