The Grand Haven Township Board has approved the creation of a special assessment district that would allow Park Court — a short road between 152nd Avenue and the Grand River — to be paved.
Russ Roberts, who lives on the road, said he and some neighbors asked for the project.
“When we get rain, the road washes out a lot,” he said. “We’ve asked to have it paved in order to alleviate those issues there.”
Roberts noted that he and his neighbors are often the ones who have to fix the road when it washes out.
The project will cost nearly $20,000, based on estimates from the Ottawa County Road Commission. Property owners will pay half of it through the special assessment and the township will fund the rest.
Township Manager Bill Cargo said the township will pay the full price tag upfront and assess the property owners for repayment.
A public hearing is set for Nov. 11 to determine how the special assessment will be handled.
Cargo said the project will be part of next year's budget.
