I just made a phone call looking for an update on one of my irons in the fire, so to speak. This is a project I have been working on for over a year and now it is coming to fruition. I have some great news. A new company called Bay View Lumber will be taking the city’s waste wood and manufacturing it into usable products here in Bay View. Previously, the city was paying to ship this wood outside the city. Sometime after the first of the year we will be releasing specific details with pictures. You the people in our district are the first to learn of this exciting initiative that is environmentally friendly, saves taxpayer dollars and creates manufacturing jobs!
