The Zoning Board of Appeals meeting scheduled for TUESDAY, Oct. 11 @ 7pm still does NOT have the AGENDA posted on the Township website. The law required a 15 day notice which the Township complied with by publishing that agenda in the Birmingham Bloomfield Eccentric. I spoke with the new Supervisor, Leo Savoie, this morning. He listened to my request again for posting the ZBA and other agendas earlier on the Township website...especially if there are PUBLIC HEARINGS on the agenda and 15 day notification requirements. To his credit, Mr. Savoie has made many other improvements at Township Hall since he began Aug. 1. Perhaps this request for posting agendas will be the next step for more open and transparent government.
I see my role as a "watchdog" of local government. Therefore, the "feel good" stories are sometimes missing. Today, I would like to share an email from a Bloomfield Township Trustee who has dedicated many years of service to the Bloomfield Township citizens. Perhaps, Oct. 8, we can say thank you .....please read about this very special boy...his son, Jack.
