Public input for decision

Sturgis municipal officials are expected to ask the public for input on whether to sell a piece of park land.

Commissioners this week plan to consider ballot language authorizing the sale of Arthur Carls Park to Burr Oak Tool, Inc. The matter will be discussed at Wednesday’s city commission meeting.

City manager Mike Hughes said Burr Oak Tool has indicated it would like the property for potential future expansion. The land is north of its manufacturing plant on West South Street.

Sturgis’ City Charter requires that any sale of park property be approved by public referendum. In order to be place on the ballot for the Nov. 4 election, the commission must approve ballot language by Aug. 12.
