The Alanson DPW yard is the site of Emmet County re-cycle bins. These bins are used by village, township and surrounding area residents.
The first phase of improvement to this area was funded by Emmet County DPW, Littlefield Township and the Village of Alanson and included, paving and cement pads to set the bins on.
The second phase of improvement to the re-cycle area was successfully completed in 2013; and included the installation of a one hundred forty six of six foot tall fence constructed of treated pine. This improvement benefited those using this area by making the area safer and more user friendly. It benefited the village by sharing the cost of the fence with the township and also by reducing the yearly cost of maintenance.
The final phase of improvements to the recycling area will be to have the fencing professionally sealed which we were unable to do with last year as it needed to set one year to age. This final proposed phase will be funded by the village and township. The estimated cost saving will be between $500-$600. This saving will be realized the following two ways, cost saving from shared project cost, and increase in the life expectance of the fence.
It is the village's goal to have this completed early spring of 2014.
