The Saline Township Board breezed through routine business in 30 minutes at its meeting Monday night. As township board members provided their trustee reports, most included the words “nothing earth shattering happened.”
The Board did renew appointments to the Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and the Township Board of Review.
The Board approved the appointment of Trudy Feldkamp, Tom Hammond and Laurie Leinbach to the Planning Commission.
Carrie DeJongh was appointed to the Zoning Board of Appeals, while David Bohnett, Tom Hammond, Taylor Jacobsen and William Weidmayer were sworn in as members of the Saline Township Board of Review.
Planning Commission chair Tom Hammond updated the Township Board on the Macon Road Bridge repair project. Hammond said that “the culverts are set in place and the cement poured”. According to Hammond, the Macon Road bridge should be open to traffic before the end of the year, depending upon the weather.
Township Supervisor Jim Marion said that the township will contract with Chelsea Lumber for the replacement of all windows in the township hall. He said there was a possibility that the windows could get replaced during the winter.
Saline Township Board meetings will occur on the second Monday of the month, beginning in January 2019. All meetings start at 7 p.m.
The December township meeting was adjourned at 7:25 p.m.
