Seneca Township board 2011.08.17

Written by David Green.

Seneca Township residents will have the opportunity to dispose of unneeded property at the fall clean-up day. The event is scheduled from 7 a.m. until noon Sept. 24.

Look for additional details in the Observer before clean-up day.

The board voted unanimously at the Aug. 8 meeting to limit public comment to three minutes per person and to allow people to speak only once at a meeting.

Problems with the Weller property will be sent to township attorney Dan Bruggeman for further action. Deterioration has occurred at the property and the fence permit issue has not been resolved.

DUST—Board members voted to give each household living on a gravel road a ticket to obtain six bags of sodium chloride from Cutler-Dickerson in Adrian. The township will pay for the material and residents will apply it on the road in front of their homes for dust control.

To obtain the ticket, contact township supervisor John Gould.

    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.
