(BROWN CITY) -- The Brown City Council was updated on the 2013 street projects. Astec Asphalt has completed initial work on Walter and Maple Streets. Resurfacing work on North Maple Valley Road began October 10. The city worked with the county engineer and surveyor to ensure that the width of the road where it joins Main Street, would be expanded to the full width of the easement. The issue of a gap between the street and parking lot at Mary Ann's Restaurant was discussed at the meeting Monday. Council members voted to share the cost of paving that area with Mary Ann's Restaurant 50/50. The total cost of the project is $1,500. Mary Ann's will have 18-months to pay $750 for the paving work.
In other business, twenty-six applications were submitted for the City Clerk position. Five candidates were interviewed last week. The Brown City Police Department is currently handling background checks on the top two finalists. The city hopes to have the new clerk on the job no later than October 22.
Brown City residents are reminded that the DPW will wrap up hydrant flushing on Friday, October 18.
