Little Whitefish Lake Sewer Dispute
At the August 2019 Board Meeting
the Pierson Township Board has retained legal council
to assist with the Sewer Dispute.
The Board continues to support the LWL & BWL
Sewer District Residents and will do whatever
is legal and just to assist the tax payers.
January of 2019 the Pierson Township Board of Directors made motion to follow an attorney recommendation to begin a dispute resolution process on behalf of the Little Whitefish Lake residents.
According to the contract with the Montcalm County Drain Commission, a Sewer Committee was established for four members, one appointment from the Pierson Township Board, one member appointed by each the LWL and BWL Associations along with the County Drain Commissioner. The Sewer Committee was to meet periodically as needed, but not less often than annually. Said meetings have not been happening and the LWL residents and the Pierson Township Board have been requesting documentation from the Drain Commissioner concerning the loan balance and financial records to no avail.
William (Bill) VanTil, Supervisor of the Pierson Township Board invited Sandy Raines the Montcalm County Drain Commissioner, Tom Porter the District 8 Commissioner (Pierson, Maple Valley & Pine Township), Pat Carr the Chairman of the Montcalm County Board of Commissioners to a Special Meeting held on June 7, 2019. The meeting was to discuss and allow the Commissioners to answer questions regarding the LWL & BWL (Big Whitefish Lake) REU (residential equivalency unit), capacity, details and financials and information about the Bond holder.
Sandy Raines and Tom Porter were not in attendance, however, Pat Carr was joined by Bob Clingenpeel the Montcalm County Controller and Phil Kohn of District 5. Many Little Whitefish Lake (LWL) residents were in attendance.
