BRONSON, MI (WTVB) - The City of Bronson is taking steps to improve and maintain the city’s water system and also working with a pair of townships on recycling. A consultant this month presented the City Council with the results of a water reliability study showing how the water system is likely to perform over the next decade. Among their recommendations were to rehabilitate both of the City’s drinking water wells and to purchase a generator to exclusively serve the water system in the case of a power outage. The rehabilitation project was approved by Council in December and work is already under way and last week, they approved the purchase of a new generator. The City Council also o-k’d two agreements tied to recycling. The first contract is between the City and Bethel and Bronson Townships and stipulates how the service will be operated, how costs will be shared, and terms of service.
The second agreement is between the City and Nissley Disposal of Burr Oak, a firm that would collect recyclable materials including metal, plastic, and cardboard. Paper products should still go to the Kiwanis Beggar’s Recycling. For now, glass isn’t being accepted. They are still working out the final details on a drop off location for the recyclables.
Bronson Township and the City have approved the agreement, Bethel Township will consider it at their March meeting
