Reports were accepted as presented/printed.

Special Order of Business:  Angie Klein and Fred Oakes of Calhoun County Road Department presented a history, current snapshot of where Marshall Township stands re: roads, and an update of what is to come.  This included a Road Improvement Plan, including costs and timelines.  If such an Improvement Plan is implemented, it would change the County’s match to 50%, up from the current 30% match and would improve all local roads within three years after implementation.   The Board will discuss putting such a request before the voters, as it would involve a new millage request.

Motion by Albaugh, 2nd by Lyng, to approve minutes of December 18, 2017 meeting, to table discussion re: increase in application fee for Planning Commission, to correct poverty guidelines for 2018, to approve outstanding bills of $63,392.65, and to approve Resolution of Support for the Kalamazoo River Community Recreational Foundation to install restroom facilities at Ceresco Green.

There were no further Audience Comments.

Board Comments:  The Board discussed the process by which a road millage request could be put on the ballot for voters in August. 

The meeting was adjourned at 8:20 p.m.
