Farmington Hills to create permanent water system council

Jackie Boleware for Council

Farmington Hills officials will on Monday talk about making the city’s temporary water system advisory council (WSAC) a permanent addition to the roster of boards and commissions.

In a memo to council members, City Manger Dave Boyer explained that state Lead and Cooper Rules require water supply systems serving a population of 50,000 or more to create a WSAC that provides public awareness about the effects of lead in drinking water. The city created a temporary council in 2018, as officials waited to learn whether there would be a regional council administered by the Great Lakes Water Authority, which supplies the city.

The 7:30 p.m. meeting agenda also includes a Freedom of Information Act request appeal and the award of more than $15 million in bids connected to the Community Center renovation.

During a 6 p.m. study session held in the Community Room, council members will get a road construction update and discuss proposed amendments to zoning and city code ordinances.

Agendas for both meetings are posted at
