The Crystal Lake Boulevard Reconstruction Project was awarded to a local contractor last night by the Grand Rapids City Council. The project was awarded to Casper Construction for the amount of $1.8 million. The bid was under the city’s estimated two million dollar budget.
Also at last night’s Grand Rapids City Council meeting, the board authorized the Grand Rapids Police Department to apply for a special deer hunt permit for the 2014 deer hunting season. The special zoned hunting areas will not change from last year’s special deer hunt in the city limits.
The Pokegama Golf Course is open for the season, and was in excellent condition after a harsh winter according to Bob Cahill’s Department Head Report.
