The Saline Township Board of Trustees was able to take care of their business in twenty minutes at their regular meeting on Monday night.

Township Supervisor Jim Marion and Treasurer Renee Luckhardt provided an update on the Macon Road bridge repair. Luckhardt said the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has given its preliminary approval to the plan. Approval was sent to back to Washtenaw County who provided additional information and forwarded the repair plan back to the MDEQ for final approval.

Supervisor Marion said “given that MDEQ has to act and it is now mid-September, it looks like completion of this project will get pushed back to the spring of 2019.”

Paul Gumtow, coordinator of the maintenance at the township hall, reported that he will get a quote from Wilderness Construction for replacement vinyl windows for the hall, though installation of the windows couldn’t be scheduled until the spring of 2019.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:20 p.m.
