2009.09.23 Dayna Cordts: Seneca Township meeting

Written by David Green.

I would like to thank all of my neighbors for showing up at the Seneca Township meeting on Sept. 14 in support of me, and what you believe is right. I do, however, apologize for the way you were treated by some members of the township board.

I thought it was completely disrespectful and unprofessional for the township treasurer to continually gasp and roll her eyes at the residents when they were trying to address the board with their concerns, and for the treasurer and the township clerk to whisper back and forth while the residents were trying to express their feelings to the board. But thank you all for your support. It makes me feel good about where I live, that this community can stand together for one another.

I would also encourage Seneca Township residents to get involved in what’s going on with our township board. It would be a good idea for the residents to start going to the meetings that are held on the second Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Seneca Township hall. The residents need to be aware of what’s happening in their community, so please take an interest in what’s happening in our township.

I would like to commend the township supervisor, John Gould. He really spent a lot of time researching the issue so that he could make an informed decision. I think he’s going to do good things for this township and the residents here.

    on your mark, get set, drum!—Drew Joughin (black shirt), Maddox Joughin and Kaleea Braun took the front row last week when Angela Rettle and assistants led the Stair District Library Summer Reading Program kids in a session of cardio drumming. The sports and healthy living theme continued yesterday with a Mini Jamboree at Lake Hudson State Park arranged by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Next week’s program features the Flying Aces Frisbee show.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
