GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) -- In a 1962 photo from the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, you can see the large cross illuminated on top of Dewey Hill.
That cross was once used more often than it is today, and most of the year it can't be seen, because it's in the down position.
Ten Sundays each summer, though, a church pays the city to set the cross upright for Worship on the Waterfront.
"It is hydraulic, and it goes up," said Grand Haven Mayor Geri McCaleb. "When it is over, push a button and it goes down. The stadium is rented by the church, and the cross is part of the rental of the whole waterfront stadium experience."
Mayor McCaleb says the city's minimal cost as it relates to the cross is included in the fee to rent Waterfront Stadium.
"It does not cost the taxpayers of the city anything," said the Mayor.
