Search Underway for Missing Boater on Lake Fenton

News Photo 7/23/14 - Genesee County authorities have closed Lake Fenton to the public as they search for a missing boater. Fenton Township fire officials say the lake is closed because a boater was reported missing on the lake overnight. The township's dive team has been called to help with the search. Michigan State Police is also expected to assist. Authorities haven't released any information on the identity of the missing person. Crews responded to the lake late Tuesday but the search was called off until 8:00 this morning. (JM)

Hartland Township Residents Weigh In On Road Improvements

News Photo 7/23/14 - The last public hearing on the plan to repair and improve roadways in Hartland Township was held last night. The Safer Roads and Pathways plan was created by a citizens’ task force, which has been meeting at least once a month since last fall to identify the priorities of township residents with regard to roads. After gathering large amounts of input from the public, the task force identified 14 different road projects and some general preventative maintenance actions that were most in need of addressing. They would be funded through a 1.5-mill, 10-year property tax, which would have to be approved by voters in November. Several residents addressed the township board with their concerns at last night’s public hearing, asking about how excess revenue would be spent, the involvement of the Livingston County Road Commission, and why some roads were chosen for improvement rather than others. One area of concern for residents was the improvement of sidewalks, which was originally part of the task force’s plan but later removed in favor of roadways. Officials say using the millage to pay for roads will allow general fund money to be spent on sidewalk improvement, but some residents were still unhappy with that plan. A poll in March showed 60% of Hartland residents would support a 1.5-mill road tax. Residents can still provide feedback to the township on the plan by calling the township offices or following the link below. (TD)

Genoa Township Invests In Upgrades To Water & Sewer Systems

News Photo 7/23/14 - Some big changes to water and sewer systems were approved at Monday night’s Genoa Township board meeting. The first change made was a series of rate increases for water and sewer hookups in the area of Latson Road an I-96. Utility Director Greg Tatara explained for the board that this area would probably see commercial growth in the coming years, and while the system had the capacity to handle some new users it could eventually get overwhelmed and need an upgrade. The increased connection fees will help mitigate that cost when such an upgrade becomes necessary. Water connection fees in the area were increased from $5,000 to $7,900 per residence equivalency unit. Sewer connection fees south of the freeway increased from $5,500 per REU to $11,400, and those north of the freeway increased to $7,200. Residents posed questions and offered suggestions to the plan, and one encouraged the board to expand the water system south of the freeway to improve the area’s attractiveness to commercial developers. The new rates will be incorporated over time. Also at Monday’s meeting, the township board approved a $6 million construction project to transfer the bulk of the work done at the Oak Pointe treatment plant to the Genoa Oceola treatment plant to the north. The project involves turning the Oak Pointe plant into a pumping station where only pre-treatment would take place, then installing a 10-inch water main to the GO plant to the north for complete treatment. The Oak Pointe plant is unable to meet state standards for sodium. Residents who use it will be picking up the tab for the project on their monthly bills, but Tatara says that will be partially mitigated by the fact that they will no longer be required to use expensive potassium-based water softeners. Work on that project is slated to begin next month, with full conversion planned to finish sometime in the spring. (TD)

Local Resource Guide Aims to Help Prevent Youth Obesity

News Photo 7/23/14 - Local health officials say work is ongoing to help reduce and prevent youth obesity in Livingston County. The Healthy Habits for Youth work group is currently compiling information on all youth obesity prevention and treatment programs, services, and initiatives in Livingston County. Officials say the information gathered will help facilitate collaboration, identify gaps, assist with needs assessment and program planning. The work group operates under the Human Services Collaborative Body and information will ultimately be shared with partners and Livingston County families in the form of a resource guide. Any Livingston County-based organization that provides a program or service promoting physical activity, nutrition, or emotional well-being for youth is encouraged to complete a short survey for each obesity prevention program, service, or effort they are leading. The submission deadline is August 31st. The form takes approximately 5 minutes to complete and The Livingston County Department of Public Health notes that the form may need to be completed and submitted multiple times for different obesity prevention programs.
