The Michigan Department of Natural Resources will hold a public information session Monday, June 17 on a waterways program assessment study for improvements to Lexington State Harbor in Sanilac County.

The session will take place at 6 p.m. in the Village of Lexington office board room, located at 7227 Huron Ave. in Lexington.

At the meeting, DNR staff, along with project consultant Edgewater Resources, will present an overview of the waterways program assessment study; discuss infrastructure assessment, market analysis and public input that has been gathered to date; and answer questions. Village of Lexington representatives will also help answer questions.

The enhancement project is funded through the Michigan State Waterways Fund, a restricted fund derived from boat registration fees, state gasoline tax and the Michigan marine fuel tax for the construction, operation and maintenance of recreational boating facilities, harbors and inland waterways.
