From our school Superintendent....

I have been informed that a CSX crew will be in Bridgman to reconstruct and repair the rail crossing at Lake Street on Monday, September 25. Lake Street will be closed from Monday morning until the morning of Thursday, September 28. I realize that we’ve had false starts before, but I firmly believe that CSX fully intends to follow through with the project this time. A traffic management company will be handling barricades and detour signage. Please assist us in spreading the news by sharing with your neighbors and posting on your social media pages. Please see link below for detour & signage information. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=6ba5f7e943&view=att&th=15e854f7da765a26&attid=0.1&disp=inline&realattid=a6356643edb62496_0.1&safe=1&zw Thank you! Juan Enrique Ganum City Manager

With the new school year beginning this week, PLEASE drive safely & remember.....motorists MUST stop for school bus flashing red lights as well as pedestrians/children using crosswalks. Let's have a safe school year!

Had the opportunity to accompany these folks today while visiting with cancer survivors & patients. They travel all over the country & have been visiting Berrien County the past couple of days. They will be at the Bridgman High School this evening for the football game......stop by & see them. GREAT bunch!

SCAM ALERT! From one of our businesses......STAY ALERT! SCAM ALERT! We received a call today, allegedly from AEP, indicating we had an unpaid bill and our power would be discontinued for 12 hours if the bill was not paid immediately. We had proof of our monthly bill payments to which the billing supervisor, Gregory Miller (Badge #7344759, phone 844-296-9590 x1380) replied: yes, we have a billing error - your payment was applied to another account. In order to suspend the disconnect we were instructed to take $535.46 in cash to a local Rite Aid, CVS, or Walgreens and pay the misplaced funds, until the billing error was corrected. At some point we would be refunded the payment, once their records were corrected. "Gregory" even gave an ID Ticket # X0704764762901. We discontinued the call and phoned AEP - of course it was a scam. According to AEP, many of these scams originate from the 844 area code and AEP received several complaints today regarding similar calls. A physician with his injured daughter at a hospital received such a call and paid the "bill". A mom and pop restaurant received a similar call and a distraught owner paid as well. These despicable people take advantage of unknowing individuals and prey on their emotions. Anna Kozak Co-Owner The Sandpiper and Hoof-To-Hanger Fiber Mill Bridgman, MI

If you happen to be at the fairgrounds in Berrien Springs today, please stop by & visit with Sgt. Tom LaVanway.....he & other departments will be there all day for Law Enforcement Day.

From our City Manager: The Bridgman Planning Commission is undertaking an update of the City’s Master Plan under a state-funded program which focuses on “community resiliency”. The press release explains the term resiliency and also includes the three dates for the community meetings: Monday, July 31 Thursday, August 17 Tuesday, September 12 Meetings will be held at 7 p.m. at the Weko Beach House. I encourage each of you to please spread the word about the meetings far and wide. In order to have a successful process we need to have ample participation from our citizens and property owners. Please note that the meeting of July 31 includes specialists on lake dynamics and beach erosion. Hopefully those topics, along with the future of the City, will generate interest.

As we all know, the Lake St. RR-crossing is still in poor condition. City Officials & I have reported this to CSX several times to no avail. If our residents & business owners would like to call them as well, here is the information:
