“It has become clear that the vast majority of West Michigan residents don’t want to see the Grand River dredged to allow big boats to navigate it from Grand Rapids to Grand Haven.
Local municipalities along the river are passing resolutions to officially oppose it. The Ottawa County Board of Commissioners and Grand Haven City Council have done it. Most recently, the Grand Haven Township and Spring Lake Township boards passed theirs. Even the Grandville City Council, whose mayor is a prominent proponent of the proposed dredging project, approved a resolution to oppose it.
Citizens speaking at the municipal board meetings have overwhelmingly urged opposition to the idea.”
