What happened to the pier safety sign?
Nancy said the sign was gone when she recently walked out to the south pier.
Grand Haven City Manager Pat McGinnis said the sign blew down and was found knocked over on Dec. 2.
McGinnis said the city alerted the Pier Safety Task Force to let them know the sign has been damaged. For now, it's at the city garage.
The double sign was installed at the base of the south pier several years ago by the Pier Safety Task Force, the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety and other organizations in the memory of Andrew Fox and Daniel Reiss, "and all others who have perished off Great Lakes beaches and piers."
According to the city's website, "These signs ... serve as a tribute to those who have lost their lives as a result of the powerful waters. The signs also remind all persons to respect the pier, water, ice and inclement weather conditions. Finally, they provide instructions in the event of an emergency."
