Monday night’s Port Huron City Council Meeting addressed the future of the city as well as taking care of some routine business. Dennis Fitzsimmons, a new police officer was introduced by Chief Platzer. The Chief also announced the retirement of two officers and the upcoming interviews of new officers. A proclamation was read honoring the Lott Anter Tailoring and Cleaning business for over 100 years of business in the city and retiring city employee Jim Brennan was honored for his years of service to the city.
The council approved the replacement of a sewer pump and an agreement with Redstone Architects to provide engineering services to explore rehabilitation or consolidation of the city’s fire stations. The process should take about eighteen weeks.
Finally, the council set goals for the city for the future at a prior work session and voted to approve those goals. The foremost goals include street repairs, rental and blight ordinances, the fire station study, tourism promotion with improved signage, and concluding the bridge plaza project. Other goals from the session can be found on the city council webpage.
