Call to the Public: Tawn Beliger, Northfield Township resident, expressed concerns about the millage proposal the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioner is placing on the November ballot because it does not benefit rural communities and taxes within our county are very high compared to the rest of the country.  Jim Widmayer and Erica Pasternak asked if the township was still interested in the property on Dexter Townhall Road because they were interested in bidding for the property. Mr. Widmayer and Ms. Pasternak were advised the Board voted against the purchase of the property.  Barry Lonik, Island Lake Rd resident, presented to the board a petition from 165 Dexter Township residents to request that the Board of Trustees place before the voters in 2017 a ten year, .5 mill ballot to fund a voluntary program providing owners of farmland and open space properties a conservation alternative to selling their land for residential development like Webster Township. Ms. Belinger also commented Washtenaw County already has a .25 mil for land conservation.

Reports: Trustee Compton gave an update on the Broadband Research initiative stating as of today 184 completed surveys have been received and 12 people have submitted their interest to be on the committee.

The Board took the following action: Approved the Agenda for July 18, 2017 Board meeting; Approved minutes from the June 20, 2017 Board meeting; Approved the draft concept of the township hall remodel and authorized Architect George Weinhagen to prepare drawings and bid documents; Approved the resolution to appoint Kim Spittler as the Building Official for Dexter Township; Approved fireworks display on September 23, 2017 at 8540 Island Lake Rd.; Approved the purchase of a speed measuring device; Approved a motion to appoint Don Darnell to the Zoning Board of Appeals to fill a vacancy thru December, 31, 2019; Approved a motion to communicate to the Planning Commission the Township Board will not entertain any ordinance  that contains any section the Township Attorney recommends against, to direct the Planning Commission to finalize their deliberations and recommendation by August 22, 2017.

Board also authorized payment of: General Fund bills totaling $54,004.13, Fire Fund bills totaling $52,968.29, Police Fund bills totaling $40,130.26; Fire Sub-Station Fund bills totaling $11.82; Agency Fund bills totaling $2,308.75, and gross monthly payroll of $25,859.28.
