Public Notice of Intent

The City of East Jordan intends to file an application for financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Rural Utilities Services to fund improvements to the existing wastewater collection system.  The existing system has been experiencing severe inflow and infiltration the past few years due to the high groundwater table and extreme weather events.  The increased water to the wastewater plant has caused sanitary sewer overflows.  The proposed project will eliminate several known points of inflow and infiltration to the system and increase the sanitary sewer collection system security.  The proposed project includes replacing approximately 728 feet of 12-inch sewer, 1,336 feet of 10-inch sewer, 3,884 feet if 8-inch sewer, 40 manholes, and 16,558 feet of sanitary force main.  The total project is estimated to cost $4.6 million dollars.  Design is anticipated to begin this summer with construction starting next spring.  A public hearing regarding the project will be held virtually on March 16, 2021 at 6:45 pm.  Questions about the project can be directed to Tom Cannon, City Administrator, 231-536-3381.

It is with great sadness we pass along the news of the passing of William "Butch" Breakey. Butch worked for the City of East Jordan starting in December of 1977 until his retirement in April of 2011. He also served as a member of the East Jordan Fire Department for several years prior as a volunteer firefighter. During his time at the city, he made a lot of friends, made us all laugh at the office and greeted us with a smile as well as accomplished several projects during his tenure.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.

The City is aware of a water main break in the area of North Lake and Hugh Streets causing low water pressure in these areas. City DPW Crews are on scene at this time and are working quickly to remedy the issue. Water may be temporarily shut off and could affect homes in this area for short amounts of times until resolved. ... See MoreSee Less
