Township Board Votes to Move Forward with Grand River Water Main Expansion

MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - Plans to continue moving forward with the Grand River water main expansion will be happening after the Township Board's Feb. 19 meeting.

The resolution proposed at the meeting asked for approval from the Board regarding the final special assessment role with the Township Clerk in addition to setting a public hearing for the project on March 19, 2019.

Township Clerk Brett Dreyfus said this resolution has been a big deal for the Township due to the long history the Township has had with extending water in this area.

"This was kind of a big deal actually," Dreyfus said. "We've had a long history with extending the water in this section of the Township. There's been issues and concerns about all of the ramifications of doing this at various times, but we all felt that this was the right time and it was a public improvement that was needed and there was support by residents that are living in that special assessment district, and so we have it before us."

Township Supervisor Ron Styka said this water extension will provide water to the Winslow's Mobile Home Park located in the area as well as a nearby gas station.

Although there have been discussion about when the right time is to start this project, Dreyfus said the board felt this was the right time and was a public improvement that was needed.

"And there was support by residents living in that special assessment district, and we have it before us," Dreyfus said.

The resolution passed with a unanimous vote.
