The video for Monday, March 15th's City Council Meeting is now available. Berkley Days, the City's Sidewalk Replacement Program, and other matters were discussed.
Berkley Days was not approved over concerns for Covid safety. Council expressed interest in an event, even if scaled down, later in the year, but the organizers said they will not be doing anything this year.
The contract for this summer's sidewalk replacement program (12 Mile to Catalpa, Greenfield to Woodward) was approved. They will also hit a few spots in the southwest corner of the city that were missed last year. If you live in this area and your sidewalk is two inches or more out of level, in the next few weeks you'll receive a letter notifying you. You'll have 60 days to fix it on your own or you can use the city's contractor. Last year most people used the city's program. You can then pay in full, or have it placed on your tax bill to pay over time.
HAVEN, a local program for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, provided us an update about their mission and the services they provide. If you or someone you know needs free and confidential help or just someone to talk to, they can contact HAVEN's crisis line at 877-922-1274. For more information or live chat see haven-oakland.org.
Council extended the City's Covid-19 State of Emergency so they can continue to meet virtually to adhere to the state's safety protocols.
A contract was approved for the Historic Fire Hall Roof and to repair some of the trim. The Historical Committee is working to try and find the original color scheme so that it can be matched.
I shared my Covid Vaccination Resources page where I am keeping information to help you get a vaccination.
