The members of the Township Board held a public hearing for proposed sidewalk repair.
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - Meridian Township has a sidewalk replacement program that has existed since 1999 which works to make sure sidewalks are in good condition
At the Township Board meeting on Sept. 21, the board held the first out of two public hearings regarding the special area district (SAD).
The areas for the proposed projects include: Briarwood; Briarwood #3, #4, #5; East Meadows Condominiums; Heritage Hills; Heritage Hills #2, #3, #4; Ember Oaks; Sunwind Estates; and Sanctuary.
The first public hearing was during the Township Board meeting on Sept. 21 where one resident sent in a written comment.
One resident wrote a comment for the board which stated concern about a sidewalk section that had sunk and was related to the recent storms.
Derek Perry, the deputy township manager and director of public works, said the issue will be investigated.
Perry will need to send a notice to property owners in the affected areas and the owners must replace or make the sidewalk safe within 20 days. If the property owners do not complete this request, the Township's contractor will replace or make the sidewalk safe.
The next hearing for the SAD sidewalk repair will be at the next Township Board meeting on Oct. 5.
