City considers legal action on esplanade

MICHIGAN CITY — The Michigan City Common Council on Tuesday heard on second reading an ordinance that, if passed, would appropriate $175,000 from the city’s Riverboat Fund to cover legal expenses the city will incur in relation to the esplanade along Michigan City’s portion of the Lake Michigan shoreline. The city is contemplating whether to pursue legal action against a lakefront homeowner who used heavy machinery to plow a path through a dune from his residence, through the esplanade and down to the beach last year.
