Boyne City has designed a sewer enhancement project and it’s slated to begin in the coming days. The pipeline will join the Eveline Township to the Boyne City sewer system. The tentative agreement that has been in place for over 7 years, is coming to fruition next month. Residents of Boyne city will have a sewer main that will run along Lakeshore Road for 1.4 miles to Sommerset Pointe. The caveat is that there will be a $10,000 charge for a property to connect to the sewer line. This will be in effect for approximately 15 years after completion of the project. In large part, this is to offset the construction costs, as well as, to reserve funds for general maintenance of the sewer main. Residents will also be required to pay a tap-in fee of $1,812, a quarterly meter fee of $44.61 and a usage fee of $6.42 per 1,000 gallons of water usage.
In agreement with the City, there will be up to 86 homeowners and various businesses connecting to the sewer line. To ease the financial concern of residents, the City has established an installment plan for annual payments to be spread over a ten year timeframe.
Fun fact: Known as a city within a city, the Renaissance Center is the home to a plethora of businesses, including: shops, restaurants, a post office, a tailor, a florist, a pharmacy, a fitness center, and movie theater. You could literally work and live there without having to leave.
