Has decision been made on the owner/operator of the water systems for two Oakland Township areas?

At the May 26, 2015 BOT meeting, the Board’s discussion alluded to the fact that the Board was still looking at several options on who will manage the water supply systems for two areas of Oakland Township.  Here is a link to the discussions at that meeting.  Trustee Giannangeli indicated there were several options that the Township was considering.

Is Detroit Water still an option for parts of Oakland Township?

At the June 23, 2015 BOT meeting, Treasurer Langlois announced that there will be a meeting between the Township Attorney and the Oakland County Water Resource Commission Attorney to:

“clarify the legal arrangement between the Township and the County, so that as we contemplate major improvements to the system, we understand the status of that and how the legal arrangement works – will work- into the future.”

Here is a video of Ms. Langlois’ comments:

 

Why is this important to the citizens of Oakland Township?  In less than a month, it appears the Township Board has moved from having several options under consideration to having selected the Oakland County Water Resource Commission as the source for managing and maintaining the water supply systems for two areas in our Township.  This apparent decision appears to have been made outside any public meeting, and without a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages for all the options that were under consideration less than a month ago.

Where and when did that discussion and decision occur in a public meeting?

    Dear Editors,

    So much for the Oakland Township Water Committee…… I signed up last summer and there have been NO meetings to date. I have requested meeting status quarterly, but to no avail.

    It seems incredulous that the person with the most in depth knowledge of the Oakland Township water system, even beyond that of the County and the Township engineer , has been shut out of any and/or all meetings regarding the future of water in Oakland Township.

    I fully understand the public ‘s frustration for they too, have been quashed from any involvement or dialogue.

    Perhaps an explanation can be told at the next Board of Trustees meeting. The one open to the public, please.

    Best Regards,
    Dominic J Moceri
