Updates and Plans
Building a higher quality public street system through data-driven prioritization and restricted funding
On the May 7, 2019 ballot, City of Brighton voters approved a Headlee Override Millage Proposal for Public Street and Related Infrastructure Improvements. At a City Council meeting shortly after the successful election, City Council committed these funds to the reconstruction and maintenance of public (local) streets and related infrastructure.
The City will use these restricted funds to complete public street repair and replacement projects, prioritized by available data and annually-updated capital plans. The City will communicate progress consistently and account separately for all investments through a restricted fund, outside of existing general operations. City Council have approved the necessary budget amendments and construction planning for the first two years of road work. Please stay tuned for updates here on our website as the planning phase comes together.
January is Radon Action Month
You can’t see, smell or taste radon, but it could be present at a dangerous level in your home. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. In fact, the EPA and the U.S. Surgeon General urge all Americans to protect their health by testing their homes, schools and other buildings for radon.
Exposure to radon is a preventable health risk and testing radon levels in your home can help prevent unnecessary exposure. If a high radon level is detected in your home, you can take steps to fix the problem to protect yourself and your family.
Radon test kits will be back in stock and available at City Hall by the end of the week (1/06/2020). One per resident, please.
