From the Desk of Supervisor Bloomquist

At the Board meeting on December 11th, the Board voted to place a ballot initiaitive to bond for road repairs/maintenance on the March 10, 2020 ballot.  Based on the Mannik Smith Group report, it is evident that the Township can not maintain Township roads to the standard residents expect.    I encourage everyone to take the time to review the in depth report provided by Mannik Smith Group.   There is a new page under departments dedicated to "Roads." You will be able to access the report there as well as a FAQ sheet, map, and information regarding past and current road projects.

The Board will be hosting two public forums to answer residents questions.  The dates are Wednesday, February 5th at 6:00 pm and Tuesday, February 25th at 6:00 pm at the Township Hall.  The consultant will also be available for your technical questions.   A mailer will be going out with additional information, the ballot language, maps, and confirmation of the public forum dates.

Please feel free to contact the Township with your questions and concerns. The full report can be found here.

Township Supervisor

 

In The Spotlight

Beeman Road Activity

The Township has received many calls on the earth moving activity taking place on Beeman Rd.  A site plan was approved by the Township to create a flood plain compensating cut adjacent to the Red Cedar River as part of the Red Cedar Renaissance project taking place on Michigan Ave. near Frandor. The removed fill will remain on site and some will be placed in the Summit Cemetery expansion area to expand use of the Cemetery for a green burial area.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of May to resume planting of crops.  Plans are available at the Township Hall for review during regular business hours.  Please refrain from walking the site as this is private property.
