All of a sudden it is June . . .where is the time going . . . .
The Memorial Day weekend festivities at Torchport Airport were again a success from both a community participation standpoint and for the fund-raising activities. I want to thank Tim Baise for his efforts and time in putting this yearís event together. I received only one complaint from residents related to the paramotors. There was good participation for the charity rides, and I took advantage of the experience of what the flyers see from up in the sky. The Township was also successful in the recent court challenge of a recent Zoning Board of Appeals decision. Initial items for the Board meeting will be a discussion/resolution regarding the Dangerous Building Police Power Ordinance, and Board discussion regarding creation of a police department for the Township. Here is a snapshot of the preliminary financial results for May YTD. Final numbers will be available at the June 20th Board meeting.
If anyone has questions on the budget or questions regarding our financials, please donít hesitate to contact me.

Preliminary agenda is available Thursday June 15 after 2 PM; final Board package and agenda will be online after 2 PM on Saturday June 17. The Planning Commission is June 13 at 7 PM.

May is here and summer can’t be far off . . . .
This is coming out later than usual as it has been a very busy month so far. The board approved at the April Board meeting the 2023 road improvement plans and the key areas are as follows: Old Mission Estates gravel roads will now be paved sometime during the summer; the upper portion of Barnes road will be repaired and repaved; a section of Lore Rd will be fixed and repaved; and Stone Circle will be resurfaced with a limestone mixture that should allow that road to hold up better for the next few years.
As mentioned in my last letter, I had been approached by Central Lake Village to see if we would be interested in sharing the cost of an additional police officer. I had an additional discussion this past week. Based on input from the Central Lake Village attorney, the original idea was not going to meet the legal test necessary for our involvement. The attorney provided some alternatives which will be explored at out Board meeting on May 16th. They had received a grant to provide for an officer in the school but had not been successful with getting someone on a part-time basis. Since part of our Township is within the Central Lake School district, our Township has a vested interest in ensuring the students in the Central Lake School district are properly protected.
