WE’RE BACK! Attention – Important Board meeting on February 14

It has been several months since we published any articles on the Oakland Township Watchers Website.  The hiatus was due to a number of things:

  • The activities in the Township have been fairly limited since the new Board took office in November (we will provide a summary of some of the more notable items that have occurred over the past few months in a future post),
  • the holidays, and
  • personal reasons that have prevented the authors from spending time on the website.

With all of that said, the February 14 2017 7PM, Oakland Township Board meeting has one agenda item that could impact a large number of our Township residents.  That item deals with the proposed Water System Ownership, Operation and Maintenance agreement between the Water Resource Commission and Oakland Township. If you live in one of the districts shown on the following map, your water system may be impacted by decisions that the Board may make.  The Water Resource Commission will be at the meeting to give a presentation on their proposal. Your water rates may be impacted by any decision the Board will make.  The Board is not planning on making a decision at the February 14 meeting, but your questions and input could help them make an informed decision at a later meeting.


If you are interested, please attend the 7 PM meeting on February 14, 2017 at the Township Hall located on Collins Road.

PS:  We have appreciated the support we have received from many Oakland Township residents for this website over the past (almost) four years.

      Diana, I am not aware of all of the specifics on what is being proposed. In addition to the ownership, operation and maintenance of the water system, the Tuesday meeting will discuss a water storage facility on the Gallagher Creek Park, as well as the water main routes being propose at Bear Creek Park and Blue Heron Park. If you cannot attend the meeting, I would recommend you watch it on channel 17 of the Comcast Cable system (if they are your provider).
