Farmington and Farmington Hills city officials will hold study sessions and regular meetings on Monday, September 17.
In Farmington, council members will meet at 6 p.m. in the City Hall conference room to talk about a proposed state rule change that would require the city to pay for replacement of all lead or galvanized pipes in its water system, increase by 10-fold the city’s lead and copper samplings, and eventually lower the “action level” of lead and copper by 3 parts per billion. They’ll also discuss road projects.
The council’s regular, 7 p.m. meeting agenda includes an amendment to the Downtown Development Authority budget due to an increase in tax capture and budget savings; action on several Department of Public Services projects; adoption of previously reviewed ordinance amendments that would increase fines for repeat parking offenders, require motorists to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks; and prohibit the sale of e-cigarettes and vape products to minors.
Both agendas, along with supporting materials, are posted at farmgov.com.
During a 6 p.m. Farmington Hills council study session, held in the community room, officials will hear a presentation on the proposed transition from Special Assessment Districts to a local road millage, which voters will decide in November.
Their 7:30 p.m. regular meeting agenda includes proclamations for National Recovery Month and Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and these items:
- a public hearing on a proposal to bring a 3-story office building and a 5-story office building, with space for a 4,000-square-foot restaurant, to property on the east side of Haggerty and south of Nine Mile Road;
- a resolution establishing a pilot program that will encourage business owners to voluntarily remove snow and ice from sidewalks in certain areas of the city;
- the awarding of a $1 million contract for the reconstruction of Halsted Road at the Minnow Pond Drain Crossing, an area prone to flooding
