Public Notices


The City of St. Louis announces a Public Meeting regarding its Project Planning Document for proposed sanitary sewer improvements in the City of St. Louis. The City will be seeking low interest Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) loan assistance for FY2024.

The purpose of this project is to address improvements to the sanitary sewer system, as well as the Union Street Pump Station and the Wastewater Treatment Plant to comply with regulatory requirements and improve the reliability of wastewater service to residents and customers. This will ensure that the City can continue to adequately convey and treat all sewerage flows in accordance with its NPDES permit.

Project construction will involve rerouting sewer infrastructure and improvements to the Wastewater Treatment Plant and the Union Street Pump Station. The Project Planning Document includes one collection system project, which includes the Union Street Pump Station improvements, and five wastewater treatment projects.

Impacts of the proposed projects include short term roadway closures, construction-related temporary soil erosion impacts and dewatering, utility excavation noise, and dust generation. The collection system and pump station project will involve work in the 100-year floodplain. Beneficial impacts include the decrease in sanitary sewer overflows and meeting design standards at the wastewater treatment plant. There are no expected long-term negative impacts from any of the proposed projects.

Project costs are as follows:

Category Capital Cost ($)
Collection System (Alternative 1) & Union Street PS $17,400,000
Secondary Clarifiers $10,100,000
Activated Sludge $5,500,000
Disinfection $5,600,000
Grit Removal $1,900,000
Solids Handling $3,600,000
Total $44,100,000

The estimated cost to users for the proposed project(s) will come in the form of sewer user rate and commodity charge increases, as follows:

Category Monthly User Cost Increase
Collection System (Alternative 1) & Union Street PS $34
Secondary Clarifiers $19
Activated Sludge $11
Disinfection $11
Grit Removal $4
Solids Handling $7
Total $85

The exact cost and scope of the project(s) may change depending on future funding arrangements that can be secured by the City.

The purpose of the hearing is not only to inform, but to seek and gather input from people that will be affected. Comments and viewpoints from the public are encouraged.

Small Town America is alive and well in the middle of Michigan, in the historic City of St. Louis!

St. Louis, the “Middle of the Mitten,” is a picturesque small town that serves its residents, neighbors and travelers with convenient shopping, eating options and a safe, clean walkable environment.

The “Geographic Center of the Lower Peninsula,” St. Louis is located right on M-46 only two miles east of US-127. The town has a fascinating history including once being home to the Magnetic Mineral Springs and bath house, two opera houses and a historic hotel. Much of St. Louis historic business district architecture has been preserved and many turn of the century buildings are still in use as businesses and shops. An array of Victorian homes can be seen along M-46 in the heart of town, including the magnificent “Elwell Castle” on the corner of M-46 and Delaware Streets. The City has made application to have a portion of North Mill Street be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Over the past several years the City has been hard at work on economic development, downtown and Brownfield projects to build an outstanding core to the City. Evidence of this is the improvement in the Central Business District of North Mill Street and M-46 where you can see a $350,000 MDOT Enhancement Project as well as a $750,000 parking lot and alleyway improvement project that was completed in 2003. Victorian lighting with underground electric, installed by the City’s own Electric Department, highlights the area along with landscaping, trees, new paving, flowers and more. Two Brownfield projects has brought a private investment of over $1 million to downtown and several other sites are being cleaned up for possible redevelopment. 2015 saw the construction of a new City Hall, housing City offices as well as the St. Louis Police Department. This is a rehabilitation and re-use of the former St. Louis IGA building on the north end of downtown. The St. Louis Area Fire Department also has a new facility in the southeast corner of the DDA area.

Whether you’re looking for a wonderful place to live, work, start a business or just visit we encourage you to browse our website more carefully and see all St. Louis has to offer!
