St. Joseph commissioners agreed Monday to form a Harbor Coalition in partnership with Benton Harbor and St. Joseph Township. Benton Harbor is the lone municipality that has yet to vote on the formation of the joint coalition.

ST. JOSEPH — The St. Joseph City Commission has joined in on a plan to establish a Harbor Coalition that would coordinate the dredging of the upper portion of the St. Joseph River and future waterway projects.

The St. Joseph Township board voted in July to support the plan, and the Benton Harbor City Commission has yet to vote on the proposal.
