First of all, the Sewer Project:
The Directional Drilling is Not Going as Promised!
Most of the gravity system in and the big collection container is in. There is some work left on Memorial Highway at the church. I feel that the project will not be done before February. Winter could be hard this year. USDA 504 Grant and forms are available for folks that qualify. For more info please contact Whiteford Township offices 734-854-2416
Next is the Water Project:
We have signed the papers for $3.8 million grant to supply water to the same district as we are providing sewer. We would have to borrow $1.5 Million of the money for the project. We have a well in on Beck Rd. and there is a Public Hearing on December 10th at 7:30pm at the Township Office. People that maybe in the district will be notified by mail. If you think you should or should not be
a part of the water district, you need to attend the meeting.
The Roads are the next concern:
All the work has been completed for this season. There is still some berm work to be done and the mowing needs to be completed.
The Township has purchased software to keep track of the graves in our 3 cemeteries. We have begun inputting all the data, this is a big job, so it will be a work in progress for awhile. When all the data is entered we then work on mapping all three . Carol Ruhl has tackled this project and is going to get it entered as quickly as possible. Lots of work to do yet. This is ongoing!
Vanauken Cemetery needs some restoration. Anyone interested should contact my office.
We are making progress at the park. The grading is done. Grass and Trees are planted. We will be putting a gate on the entrance on Sterns Rd in a week or so. People are still trying to wreck what we are doing by doing donuts in the parking lots and on the new ground. If you see someone doing damage to your park please call Me or Dan Briskey at 734-856-8011
Natures Conservancy is helping us manage the 14 acres of woods.
We now has walking trails. the driveways are paved and we have enough material left for paved paths to the ball diamonds.
We have entered into a agreement with Petersburg for coverage by a contract Sheriff. This an opportunity to see if we need our own contract sheriff.
We have applied for a SAW grant for a master plan for Storm and Waste Water.
If we get the grant we will be able to solve a storm water problem near the state line on Memorial Highway. This is a up to $2,000,000 straight grant no matching funds.
We need your support to keep moving forward.
