Residents in Algoma will be seeing improvements on the hardware inside and outside city hall in the coming year. The City of Algoma just authorized funds to make some technology upgrades in-house. According to City Administrator Jeff Wiswell, cable television and the public access channel will be getting new equipment soon.
Algoma also approved a contract with Bay Lake Regional Planning to do a GPS map layering of all sidewalks and fire hydrants, along with traffic signs and aprons on the city’s streets. This will improve the maintenance and upkeep of the city’s infrastructure in the future, according to Wiswell.
