City Of St. Joseph Declines Pier Safety Committee With Berrien County

The City of St. Joseph will not be joining the pier safety initiative being worked on by the Berrien County Board of Commissioners. Mayor Mike Garey said last night that due to the lighthouse renovations in 2015, they will be standing aside on any decision regarding life rings.


The county board has two resolutions before them on Thursday, one of which calls for not taking any action until an agreement can be hammered out with the city regarding the North Pier. Several county commissioners want to add up to 13 life rings on the South Pier at Silver Beach County Park, but some have pushed back saying both piers should have the same regulations.
