Lima Township Hall

By Lisa Carolin

The Washtenaw County Health Department is advising that no one go in Lima Township Hall’s basement. This comes after Township Supervisor Craig Maier became ill earlier this month while doing some cleaning in the basement, which he believes was caused by mold.

At the Lima Township Board’s Aug.14 meeting, the board unanimously 4-0 (Don Laier absent) voted to get bids from four companies recommended by the County Health Department regarding cleaning up the basement. In the meantime, the township purchased a dehumidifier, which Maier says is helping.

In other action, the board approved spending $400 to have a study done to find out what the cost will be to the township for current and future retirement funding programs through MERS (Municipal Employees Retirement System of Michigan).

Washtenaw County Commission Kent Martinez-Kratz spoke during public comment about a millage that will be on the November ballot for county residents, something he does not support.

It’s one mill for eight years and is for public safety and community health. Martinez-Kratz said that 38 percent would go toward Community Mental Health, 38 percent to the County Sheriff’s Department, and 24 percent would be returned to cities.

In other news at the meeting, Maier said that the township has saved $50,000 in road maintenance fees, which will be used to finish work on Lima Center Road and for limestone, grading, and brining on roads that he will determine with the Washtenaw County Road Commission.

A reminder to anyone interested that Lima Township Hall offers free wifi courtesy of the Chelsea District Library.
