(For Immediate Release)
JOINT PRESS RELEASE
RE: Teal Lake Beach Project
The City of Negaunee, City of Ishpeming, and the Rotary Club of Ishpeming are announcing a joint cooperation project. While in its beginning stages, the parties involved are seeking out the possibility of public support and comments on the development of a beach site on the west side of Teal Lake.
“The Rotary Club is always looking for projects that can affect the community in a positive way, we saw a need for additional opportunities on Teal Lake and approached both cities to get their thoughts, so far everyone has been very supportive”, Lance Peterson, President for the Rotary Club of Ishpeming said.
Late this summer, the Rotary Club approached both the Cities of Negaunee and Ishpeming to see if they were willing to help with the proposed beach project. “All of Teal Lake is within the City of Negaunee’s City limits, this means Negaunee will need to be involved,” Nate Heffron, City Manager of Negaunee said. However, the proposed site where the beach could possibly be developed is owned by the City of Ishpeming. Mark Slown, City Manager of Ishpeming, commented: “A collaborative project with a neighbor is a good thing for everyone involved.”
Currently, both cities have agreed to hold several public meetings to gather comments on the proposed project. These meetings are slated to begin soon, each community will announce where and when these meetings will take place. Both Managers agree: “we are really looking for public input to see if there is support for this project and what amenities people would like.
According to both city mangers, no funds have been allocated at this time by either city or the Rotary Club. Both communities and the Rotary are working towards gathering information only. Once all the information has been gathered the parties involved will share their results and determine what the next step will be.
Questions concerning this release may be directed to the attention of the City Manger, Nate Heffron at (906) 475-7700 ext. 11, and City Manager Mark Slown at (906) 485-1091 ext. 204, or Lance Peterson at (906) 250-7988.

What is Smart 911?
Smart 9-1-1 is a service that allows residents to create a free Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and first responders to have in the event of an emergency. Then, when anyone in that household dials 9-1-1 from a phone associated with their Safety Profile, their profile is immediately displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker providing additional information that can be used to facilitate the proper response to the proper location. At a time when seconds count, Smart 9-1-1 provides details that could impact response the second an emergency call is placed, which could be the difference between life and death.
How does Smart911 work?
You enter your information….. 9-1-1 sees information that is vital in an emergency!
How can I sign up?
You can sign up for Smart 9-1-1 at www.smart911.com and create a Safety Profile for your household to give 9-1-1 valuable information about yourself, family members, your home, pets and even vehicles that will display automatically on the 9-1-1 call taker’s screen when you make an emergency call. It’s private and secure and you control what information is in your profile. These details can save seconds or even minutes during an emergency.

The following message is from Aaron Carr of A. Lindberg and Sons:
Due to a dispute–now resolved– between MITA and the Operators union, there is a backlog of paving work. The backlog has impacted ALS’s ability to complete work in the City. Due to the uncertainty of paving subcontractors to complete work before winter, we have decided the best course of action is to hold off further excavation work on Washington Street until 2019. Work was originally scheduled and posted to begin Sept 4th in this area, this was also the day that MITA began their lockout of the Operators Union and we were informed by our Subcontractor that all paving schedules were suspended until further notice.
Unfortunately, further work now would risks Washington Street being in worse condition this winter and spring. The pulverized blacktop lane has the best chance at holding up and being maintained over the winter due to the undisturbed material and underlying roadbed. To dig in this area now will cause significantly increased hazards and maintenance to keep this area passable over winter. Additionally, construction would have also added numerous water service trenches cut across the other lane that would be extremely difficult to maintain and add hazards to city plows. This has been a very trying and difficult situation to manage.
The situation between MITA and the Operators has affected hundreds of different jobs across the state. It has forced us to change our approach to the end of this construction season with focus on attempting to limit the potential winter hazards for the City, its people, and this project. Many difficult decisions had to be made. Even with the call back to work as of Friday Sept 28th of operators across the state, the situation is beyond recovery due to the huge backlog of state and federal projects to catch up.
Our focus is now on quickly preparing work areas for safety during the approaching winter. We are hopeful to finish up the currently disturbed areas in the 8th edition as well as the Cleveland location and cover them with blacktop as soon as possible. Unfortunately, Washington Street as well as– potential some other areas– may be left without paving for the year. We are going to provide maintenance on all of these areas throughout the winter and spring and have since began a schedule of weekly attention the Washington Street area. If more than weekly is required it will be provided. Work will commence again on this area as soon as weather allows us in 2019.
