Tri-party road work for year introduced
At the Monday, February 10, Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees meeting, director of public works Noah Mehalski introduced a recommendation from Oakland County and the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), which along with Bloomfield Township, would pay for improvements on three streets. Bloomfield Township Supervisor Leo Savoie said the proposed road maintenance would consist of three township roads, Wing Lake Road, between 14 Mile and Maple roads; Exeter Road; and Wabeek Lake Road South, up to the West Bloomfield border. The work would be paid for via tri-party funds with Bloomfield Township, Oakland County, and the Road Commission for Oakland County all paying one-third, approximately $242,299.10 each. The budget for the 2020-2021 proposal was $726, 879.30, a two percent increase from 2019 that has been approved by risk managers. All of the trustees were in favor of supporting the roadwork and the tri-party funding, which will return at a later meeting for a vote of support.
