OTTAWA LAKE — Whiteford Tonwship keeps moving forward with its first municipal sanitary sewer project.
The township board held a special meeting Tuesday to approve a resolution that allows the board to have the official public hearing on the creation of the sewer district at its next regular meeting, May 15.
Supervisor Walter Ruhl said the township has received official notification of the $1.75 million grant and low-interest loan. Now, it needs to continue moving forward with holding the necessary meetings, signing the proper paperwork and getting all engineering and legal documents in place.
The board also voted to close on the property where the grinder pump for the system will be located.
Two area residents attended Tuesday’s meeting.
Other items on the agenda included hiring a new auditing firm. The board chose Abraham & Gaffney of East Lansing on the condition the firm will give the township a one-year contract with a two-year option.
