What makes Coopersville such a unique and pleasant place to work, live, and play is the effect of community healers. Those individuals that care and have empathy for others and for the efforts and accomplishments of residents and business owners alike. Without naming names, I can think of at least a dozen people here in Coopersville that go out of their way to smooth “trouble waters,” to provide direction and a sympathetic ear to someone that is having difficulties, to provide resources either financial or otherwise to a group requesting assistance. I have always believed there was something “special” about this place we call Coopersville, but it wasn’t until Mr. Brooks spoke those words “community healers” that the awareness became defined and real. Thank you to our own community healers; you’re loved and appreciated more than you know.
Monday night, we have a rather light agenda. A few bills to be paid with a discussion on a proposed change to the Fire Authority Agreement with Polkton Township. Please review your packet and if you require additional information or clarity please don’t hesitate to contact me. Enjoy this “fair” weather while we still have it, be safe, and have a grand weekend!
We received two proposals from two engineering firms last Friday for the Phase II Upgrade for the WWTP. Each proposal actually has within it two separate proposals as instructed by me. The first proposal is what can we build with $5 million and more specifically what the load and volume limits are. The second proposal is what would the upgrade cost to treat a certain level of loading and volume. Those numbers are under review and will be provided to council for review either Monday or a few days after.
Water Project Phase I
As was stated in the last council packet, work/efforts continue to explore reasonable funding options. As with the WWTP project I’ve requested two different proposals that are quite different in scope. The reason for this is to be prepared for any changes in water requirement demands from fairlife and/or CDF. When these proposals are complete, hopefully in a couple of weeks, we will meet and discuss the attributes of each. Please call if you have specific questions.
