City-wide leaf pickup begins October 14 and will end November 15 (dependent on weather). Do not bag your leaves. If you live on Grand River Avenue, do not put them in the street, only rake to the curb. All other areas, if the leaves are not in the street, they will not be picked up.
•PARKING LOT RECONSTRUCTION
Beginning the week of October 7, the parking lot adjacent to The Bistro, Williamston True Value Hardware, and Red Cedar Grill in downtown Williamston will be closed for reconstruction. Reconstruction includes the entire length of the parking lot from the entrance on Grand River Avenue to the entrance on Middle Street. The project will include new curb and gutter, stormwater improvements, and pavement. It is expected to be complete by mid-November, weather dependent.
Public parking is available in the lot of the Williamston United Methodist Church, accessible from Middle Street, on all days except Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings.
The sidewalk on the north side of Middle Street between Cedar Street and Putnam Street will be closed during construction. The sidewalk on the south side of Middle Street in this block will remain open for pedestrians.
This project is made possible by the City of Williamston Downtown Development Authority. We thank you for your patience during the construction of this improvement project.
