We talked. They listened.┬áIt’s not every day that a public utility takes on the cleanup of a 26-acre tract of land overrun by invasive plant species and littered with decades of waste and scrap.

The project is an important story. So we reached out to our local and state media contacts to tell them about the remarkable work the Holland Board of Public Works is doing with land restoration at the new Holland Energy Park. The reporters agreed, with the result being favorable coverage of the story in West Michigan and statewide. A good story tells itself, but sometimes it needs a little help.
