GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (Grand Haven Tribune) -- The city continues to look at ways to fund restoration work on the trademark catwalk structure that sits atop Grand Haven's south pier.
The catwalk connects the entrance light and inner light to the shore along the south pier — a structure that's also set to be repaired at some point in the future by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This will require the catwalk to be temporarily moved, or removed if the city does nothing.
"If the corps comes in and wants to do this, it's going to cost $200,000 to lift up the catwalk without making any repairs," City Councilman Mike Fritz said.
This has created some sense of urgency as an ad hoc fundraising committee meets periodically to drum up ways to fundraise for the catwalk.
