Construction Begins on Hotly Debated Dollar General
Construction began this week on the hotly debated Dollar General. Excavating equipment began moving dirt at the new location. Heavy rains and lots of mud delayed the work this week. Pallet skids, used to keep equipment from sinking too far into the mud were seen on-site.
The Village of Grass Lake confirmed they issued the necessary permits to the builders, Westwind Construction out of Spring Lake, MI, on Monday, February 6th. The building permits do not include the estimated costs of construction. They show the property as being 2.37 acres and the building size being 9,304 square feet.
The permits require $1,665 in permit fees as well as $3,000 for water hook-up and $3,000 for sewer hook-up.
Previous construction details indicated the back portion of the property would need to be raised approximately 3 1/2 feet to match the grade of the rest of the property.
Zoning requirements required the building conform to very specific specifications. It will be unlike any other Dollar General in the area.
