SUPERVISOR'S UPDATE SEPTEMBER 16, 2020

Supervisor Update on Landfill Legislation
Posted on 09/16/2020
I represented Northville Township in Lansing yesterday along with Treasurer, Fred Shadko and the President of The Conservancy Initiative, Ralph Lassel to address new legislation regarding landfills in Michigan. I testified before the Ways and Means Committee and advocated for the inclusion of a provision in the new landfill legislation to protect bordering communities. Our proposal would require Northville Township, as a bordering community, to approve any expansion of the Arbor Hills Landfill. Hopefully, this committee will report the proposed legislation, with our suggested amendment, to the House of Representatives for a vote in the near future. The legislative process will continue and we will provide periodic updates.
