City & Township continue to work toward water/sewer solution

JOINT PRESS RELEASE FROM CITY OF ALPENA & CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF ALPENA:

To the residents of the City of Alpena and Charter Township of Alpena,

As released several months ago, your City and Township representatives have been working together diligently to find a suitable solution for our community regarding the water and sewer utility.

We still believe that the formation of an authority is the best option.

While we continue to work towards that goal, we have also discussed the necessity for public involvement. Large gathering restrictions have limited our ability to provide you with a public presentation, but at the same time has afforded us the opportunity to continue our research and dialog in order to answer our internal questions and those we anticipate you will have.

Both municipalities are working together towards the common goal of improving Alpena for our citizens and water consumers. Our intention is to schedule a public meeting to present our proposal and hear your input once we are able and prepared to do so.

We still have work ahead of us and we truly appreciate your patience and understanding.

Respectfully,

Mayor & Council, City of Alpena
Supervisor & Board, Charter Township of Alpena
