LOVE’S CREEK/SESAME DRIVE

Bob Hanvey said the township attorney has recommended that the township precisely follow Public Act 188 rather

than take shortcuts.  Mr. Hanvey said he could prepare a suggested procedure for establishing a special

assessment district.  Dave Hamann motioned that the Love’s Creek homeowners or any other parties who wish

to establish a special assessment district must follow the procedures of Public Act 188 as recommended by the

township attorney.  Tammy Beal seconded.  Motion carried 4-0.

NORTHERN LIGHTS PRELIMINARY SITE PLAN

Jim Barnwell from Desine, Inc. reviewed this project for the board.  Bob Hanvey asked about the development being

served with municipal water.  Mr. Barnwell said they prefer to have wells.  Tammy Beal said the township has been

receiving complaints about work starting before 7:00 a.m.   Dave Hamann motioned to grant preliminary site plan

approval for Northern Lights.  Tammy Beal seconded.  Motion carried 4-0.

HEATING/COOLING PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Paula Wyckoff said it would be a good idea to schedule regular maintenance on the township’s heating and cooling

system. Bob Hanvey said there are five units and one at the fire hall.  Tammy Beal said she could put an ad in the

paper for bids.

TOWNSHIP HALL COOLING CENTER

Bob Hanvey suggested that the township hall could be used as a cooling center during heat warning alerts, similar

to the Recreation Center .  Dave Hamann questioned whether the township would require additional insurance. 

Mr. Hanvey said he would get additional information from the Recreation Center . 

TOWNSHIP HALL OUTDOOR LIGHTING

Tammy Beal said the lower level needs outdoor lighting, including the walkway.  Bob Hanvey asked if this could be

coordinated with the lights for the pump stations.  Tammy Beal will discuss with Cindy Hodge .  Mr. Hanvey also

suggested that the township contact Paul Ganz from DTE regarding a pole light.

CORRESPONDENCE/UPDATES

Bob Hanvey said the date hasn’t been set for the McCracken case.  Tammy Beal said she and Dan Lowe went to

the fire hall to check for roof leaks.  Mr. Lowe discovered two holes that had been cut for ventilation that weren’t

used.  Ms. Beal will follow-up with having it repaired.        

FOR THE GOOD OF THE TOWNSHIP

Bob Hanvey congratulated the two candidates for trustee, and said half of the fire hall driveway has been

paved.

CALL TO THE PUBLIC
