Advisory council to meet
The Plymouth Township Citizens Advisory Council for 2018 will meet for the first time in March.
Township Supervisor Kurt Heise said the advisory council is a way for residents to be directly involved in the strategic planning, mission, and future of their township government.
He said that the first Citizens Advisory Council formed last year was very successful, with more than 100 residents involved at some point in the process. The council presented a final report to the board of trustees in the fall of last year.
The council is a citizen-driven, voluntary group of concerned residents who are interested in serving on one or more of the four following committees: Public Safety; Municipal Finance; Municipal Infrastructure or Environmental Stewardship, Heise said.
The Citizens Advisory Council will meet at least twice a year, but committees will be asked to meet at least four times a year to review and discuss township services and issues, and to help the township board with ideas to improve the community, he explained.
While not an elected body, Heise said the citizens council will serve to further the civic health and future direction of the township.
“The council is a strategic planning and review committee that has a hand in assisting the board of trustees in our policy-making process,” Heise said, “It’s vital that we get feedback from our experienced, hardworking residents.”
The organizational meeting of the council is planned from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, March 22 the Plymouth Town Hall Meeting Room, 9955 N. Haggerty Road. Membership is limited to Plymouth Township residents and the meeting is open to the public.
Residents with questions can contact Heise at (734) 354-3201 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
