ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - The Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting today in honor of the official opening of Santiago Snow and Lawn Care, LLC.
Owner Paulette Santiago said starting the business has been something she’s been wanting to do for a while.
“I’m originally from Ishpeming. I graduated in ’94 from Westwood High School. My maiden name is Kaminen. I have heard from many in the area that there aren’t many ‘personal touch’ snow removal services available, so I decided to come back and fix that," Santiago said.
She spent the last 15 years in the Green Bay area, working with heavy equipment, taking safety courses and serving on safety committees. With this experience, she said snow removal is a natural profession for her, but she said she offers something that others don’t: that personal touch.
“Most don’t offer things like shoveling porches or steps, or snow blowing around areas, salting porches, removing snow from roofs. I do that,” Santiago said.
Santiago Snow and Lawn Care, LLC is located on County Road 581, and primarily serves Ishpeming and its surrounding areas. The business is also fully insured by Iron Range Bank.
Prices for snow removal and lawn care vary, and are based on the size of the area, the amount of snow to be removed, what equipment must be used and if there are any add-ons (salt, shoveling, etc.) to be done.
