Supervisor Kurt Heise today announced the return of the “Plymouth Township Citizens Advisory Council” for 2018, a way for residents to be directly involved in the strategic planning, mission, and future of their township government.
The first Citizens Advisory Council formed in 2017 was very successful, according to Heise, with more than 100 residents involved at some point in the process, culminating in a final report to the Board of Trustees in the fall of last year.
The Council is a citizen-driven, voluntary group of concerned residents who are interested in serving on one or more of the four following committees:
The Citizens Advisory Council will meet at least twice a year, but committees will be asked to meet at least four times a year to review and discuss township services and issues, and to help the Township Board with ideas to improve the community.
While not an elected body, Heise said the Citizens Council will serve to further the civic health and future direction of the township.
“The Council is a strategic planning and review committee that has a hand in assisting the Board of Trustees in our policy-making process,” Heise said, “It’s vital that we get feedback from our experienced, hardworking residents.”
The Council’s organizational kick-off meeting will occur Thursday, March 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Plymouth Town Hall Meeting Room, 9955 N. Haggerty Road. Membership is limited to Plymouth Township residents and everyone is invited to participate.
