SPECIAL BOARD MEETING
May 31, 2016
10:00 a.m.: Meeting called to order by Terry Acton
Pledge of Allegiance: Respected by all
Board Members Present: Terry Acton, Maye Rood, Nancy Austin, John Scherrer
A discussion about needing a temporary Trustee until someone is elected in November was discussed by the board members. Anyone running for the trustee position would not be considered as it would be an unfair advantage over the other candidates. Five other people from the Planning Commission were discussed and then Terry Acton made a motion to nominate Betty Laskowsky as temporary Trustee, supported by Maye Rood.
Roll Call: Ayes: John Scherrer, Nancy Austin, Terry Acton, Maye Rood.
Absent: None Betty Laskowsky was sworn in after the meeting by the Township Clerk, Nancy Austin.
Resolution #15-21 to accept the Agreement with the Clare County Road Commission for the Bituminous Overlay of one mile of Cranberry Lake Road, East of Hamilton Dr. by Eberhart to the Cranberry Lake Subdivision was presented. The Road Commission will assume the costs of all repairs to the road before the overlay is done. The price of 47,160.00 is almost half price due to a good deal on asphalt that the Road Commissioner had acquired. The overlay is the responsibility of Hayes Township. Therefore the resolution was offered by John Scherrer, supported by Terry Acton.
Roll call: Ayes: Terry Acton, Maye Rood, John Scherrer, Nancy Austin
Nays: None Absent: None (see attached resolution)
A list of Foreclosed Properties in the township was received from Jenny Beemer-Fritzinger, the County Treasurer for the board members to review. The pros and cons of such purchases were discussed and a decision needed to be made by June 10th or the right to purchase would be lost. The discussion was that it would not be a benefit to the township to make such purchases due to cost, not being able to resell the properties, leaving the township with just empty lots.
10:25 a.m. Motion by John Scherrer to adjourn, supported by Terry Acton, all ayes M/C
