As the superheroes and princesses get ready to suit up and head out the door for the popular trick-or-treating tradition, it is important to remember these safety tips:
- Make sure costumes are the right size to prevent trips and falls.
- Glow sticks and flashlights make trick-or-treaters more visible and easily seen by drivers.
- Popular trick-or-treating hours are between 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Motorists are urged to be especially alert for kids during this time.
- Children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
- Those mature enough to be out without supervision, should trick-or-treat in groups - in familiar, well-lit areas.
From the City of Berkley, we hope you have a safe and happy Halloween full of treats!

Harvard Road Project (Woodward to Cass) Update
UPDATE: On November 5, 2016, the Department of Public Works, along with city engineers, will conduct a walkthrough of the project with residents along Harvard, between Cass & Woodward. For more information on the walkthrough - click here.
In July of 2016, City Council approved a design services contract for a water main replacement and road reconstruction project on Harvard Road from Woodward to Cass. The design phase has started and includes several components such as coordination with third-party utilities, topographic survey and other actions necessary to develop the plans and specifications required for permits and public bidding.
The scope of this project includes the removal and replacement of the existing asphalt road surface, new concrete curb and gutter, driveway approaches, sidewalk, drainage structures, tree replacements and new 8” public water mains.
By January 2017, the design phase (final plans and permits) should be complete and public bidding will occur shortly thereafter. Construction is tentatively scheduled to start in spring of 2017. While still very early in the process, the estimated total project costs are $2.3 million. The City Water Fund and Major Streets Fund will subsidize these improvements.
As you may know, homeowners are responsible for the entire sewer lead from the home to the City sewer on the north side of Harvard (including the connection). All residents in the area are encouraged to address any private sewer repairs before construction starts in 2017. By doing so, the cost of these repairs may be significantly lower as opposed to after the roadway is repaved. Contact a licensed plumber for details and note many plumbers can provide a video of the lead to assess condition.
Please check the City website regularly for project updates at www.berkleymich.org.

DPW Tree Maintenance Program
The Department of Public Works will be evaluating trees in the city’s public right-of-ways. Representatives from J. H. Hart, the urban forestry company hired by the city, will be driving through Berkley, trimming city owned trees as needed. On occasion, the certified arborists may determine a tree is in poor condition and recommend its removal. Some of the older Silver Maple trees in Berkley have internal rot. This condition compromises the tree’s structural integrity and ultimately creates safety concerns. For more information on this process, contact the Department of Public Works at (248) 658-3490.
