Farmington Schools trustees consider audit, courthouse property easement

Farmington Public Schools trustees will consider approving an easement agreement Tuesday that will move forward a housing development on the former 47th District Courthouse property in Farmington.

Farmington Hills-based Ten Mile Development purchased the property in November of 2017 and plans to build 14 ranch and colonial houses, ranging in size from 1700 to 2800 square feet. But the project has been snagged for months over an easement agreement that dates back to 1979.

Officials will also review the district’s annual audit, which gets a first look during a 5:30 p.m. Finance Committee meeting, look at where Harrison High 9th-11th graders will go after the school closes in June, and consider a bid award for construction at Warner Middle School.

In addition, trustees will honor National Merit Semi-Finalists and Commended Students, AP Scholars, Boys and Girls State/Nation representatives, and students who earned a perfect ACT score.

Both meetings are held in the board room at the Schulman Administrative Center, 32500 Shiawassee in Farmington. The agendas, with supporting materials, are available at  login.boardbook.org/Public/PublicHome.aspx?ak=1000199. Both meetings will be broadcast live on cable channel 10 and available for viewing at tv10.viebit.com.
