City council to discuss new splash pad, proposed gas station

Council-members in Port Huron will reconvene tonight at the Municipal Office Center for the first city council meeting in nearly a month. Among the items on tonight’s rather lengthy agenda is for members to receive and file the results of last week’s planning commission meeting. The planning commission denied a special use permit for a gas station with convenience store at the former Family Video at 10th and Lapeer. Council could choose not to accept the planning commission’s finding and schedule their own public hearing on the matter.

Council will also be asked to approve nearly $128,000 dollars for the purchase of a new splash pad from Penchura, LLC. The equipment would be installed at Gratiot Park in Port Huron. There will also be several first readings of ordinances tonight which seek to amend the city’s blight code, designating certain violations as blight and making them subject to the City’s Administrative Hearings Bureau process. Port Huron City Council meets at 7pm tonight at the Municipal Office Center.
