My Town: Berlin Raceway reopens with a whole new look


MARNE, Mich. (WZZM) - Here's another sign spring is finally here; the Berlin Raceway has reopened with a whole new look.

Through the coldest winter days, construction crews hammered away at the latest renovations to the track and its amenities.

"We got the green flag all the way around last September, and here we are today," said Chris Danielson, announcer and vice president of sales and media.

This multi-million dollar renovation project gives racing fans more options for more comfortable seating with higher elevation, private suites, plus more spots to grab food. And, wait until you see the big screens, "We're putting a couple robotic cameras into the corners, so our actual race broadcast will be greatly enhanced this year as well."

My Town: Four-legged landscapers coming to Ottawa County parks

My Town: Four-legged landscapers coming to Ottawa County parks

COOPERSVILLE, Mich.--  Three Ottawa County parks will welcome some four-legged landscapers next month.

The Ottawa County Parks Department is bringing in goats to combat invasive plant species.  The goats will be released at Bur Oak Landing in Coopersville, Eastmanville Bayou in Allendale and Riverside Park in Grand Haven in May.  Parks officials say eating plants instead of grain is healthier for goats, and the animals like to eat graze on woody, shrub-like plants including poison ivy, which is in abundance at the parks. The Ottawa County Parks Department says repeated use of grazing goats has been shown to eliminate 90 percent of invasive, woody plants over three years.
