Menominee's 14th Avenue Reconstruction Project Meeting.

Menominee’s 14th Avenue Reconstruction project will begin earlier than expected

 

At last night’s 14th avenue reconstruction information meeting. Menominee City Engineer, Valerie Melon updated residents on how the reconstruction process will take place. First by letting them know that the original May 1st start date will begin with a tentative April 15th start date, which is two-weeks earlier than anticipated. Melon says if you live on the 23-hundred block it will become difficult to get through and you will need to utilize the alley way. Melon says you will see a gravel street for the majority of the project.
Melon says that the 24-hundred block will receive new storm sewer where they never had storm sewer before, so you’ll see sewer work happening on both sides of the street early on in the project. There will NOT be a driving detour for motorists but the City of Menominee will post updates for residents on their website and other media outlets.

A Wallace man is facing felony charges of kidnapping and two counts of first degree sexual conduct.

kevin ihander43-year-old, Kevin Ihander of Wallace, Michigan turned himself into the Menominee County Sheriff’s Department last week after the Menominee prosecuting attorney’s office issued an Emergency Motion to Revoke Bond due to a domestic disturbance that occurred at his girlfriend’s residence in Middle Inlet earlier this month.
     According to court records the female victim stated Ihander made threatening statements that he’d go to work and kill her, other guys, and himself. Since this is strangely similar to a July 2016 incident that involved a female that Ihander choked while having sexual intercourse with. Prosecutors deemed he was in violation of the terms and conditions of his surety bond by leaving the State of Michigan to assault and threaten to kill the female victim at her home.

A pretrial conference is set for June 9th at 9:30 in Menominee County Circuit Court.
