UPDATE: Oakland Township sued for over $4 (now $5) million in Water Tap Fees

It was previously reported on this website that Oakland Township was being sued by two developers for fees they paid Oakland Township to connect with the Detroit Water System in the future.  Since the Township Board has decided to stop any future efforts to connect to the Detroit Water System, the developers are requesting that their fees be refunded (see previous post).  Recently the Pulte Company has also filed a similar lawsuit against the Township.


Why is this important to the residents of Oakland Township? The significant amount of money that may have to be refunded to the developers and some homeowners will have to be decided in court, contributing to the already historically high legal expenses incurred by our Township.
