COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Coldwater City Manager Jeff Budd sends along more signs that it’s really spring beyond the early arrival of warm temperatures last month. According to Budd, city staff is hoping the final freezing weather is behind us and opened the public restrooms at the various parks in town. In addition, summer activities such as softball, 4 on 4 volleyball, kickball, dodge ball and fast pitch softball will soon be underway and swimming lesson registration is now available. The Heritage Independence gym floor has also been resurfaced.
Residents are being encouraged to be a good neighbor and to maintain their properties. The first round of lawn abatement letters have been sent out.
Budd also says as just a reminder the 25th Annual Coldwater Swap Meet/Car Show is only three weeks away. It will be held at the Branch County Fairgrounds May 12th and 13th. The car cruise through Coldwater is scheduled for Saturday at 4 pm. There will be a block party on South Monroe Street following the cruise with live music.
The semi annual hydrant operating program will start Monday of next week. Employees will be flushing the hydrants around the clock to minimize inconveniences to residents.
And finally, the playground equipment project is finished at OptimistPark. Budd says a big thank you goes out for the contribution of labor hours from Ted Short and his TJ Rampit crew who assisted with the erection of the playground equipment.
