City council meets tonight in Port Huron

Council members in Port Huron could decide the fate of a vacant house that caught fire back in 2016 tonight. City Council will hold a public hearing tonight for a residence at 1103 Cedar Street. The home was damaged by a fire in 2016 and attempts to remodel it have been unsuccessful. The home, if deemed a nuisance by city council tonight, would be slated for demolition. Council will also be asked tonight to approve a five year $30,000 contract with Otis Elevators for servicing city owned elevators. Council will also be asked tonight to approve a $10,000 dollar bid for equipment at the waste water treatment plant, and a $100,000 dollar bid from Motorola for fire department radios.

At the request of a council member Scott Worden, two resolutions have been added to tonight’s agenda regarding the potential sale of Haynes Park. One is to study the feasibility of placing a regulation college-sized soccer field at the park. The other is to set a public hearing for the proposed sale of the park. The purchase agreement will not be on tonight’s agenda following SC4’s decision not to proceed with the athletic complex, at least for now. Port Huron City Council meets at 7pm tonight.
