Mentzer Trail utilities extension engineer study accepted by council

On the shore of South Lindstrom Lake it wouldn’t be overly dramatic to say there’s been a situation in the vicinity of Mentzer Trail.  There are 22 wastewater systems that the county reportedly identifies as functioning in an “unknown” manner, there are four parcels that have no sewer system at all;  seven homesites use a holding tank and 22 have a mound system.  According to the feasibility study for a project to extend city sewer out into the township, on Mentzer,  there are also 12 vacant lots.

The North Branch School Board, with Tim MacMillan absent, heard some good news on the financial front last week.  The state legislature dedicated an amount from budget surplus late this summer,  to go to schools.  The plan is for the supplemental school safety aid to go into a district account to be used as if it were a safe schools levy.
