News in Brief

February 06, 2013 - Partnership sought

for human resources

Independence Township may partner with Orion Township to outsource its Human Resource (HR) needs.

"We've met with [Orion Township Supervisor Chris Barnett] a couple of times on this and other topics," said Supervisor Pat Kittle. "Economies of scale can start to warrant lower prices."

Because both townships need HR service, Kittle thinks partnering could offer "a volume discount because it's now two municipalities they're working for."

High Five planned

Start lacing up your running shoes because there's a High Five Race planned for downtown Clarkston. On Jan. 28, the Clarkston City Council unanimously approved a 10-kilometer run, which will start at Depot Park on Nov. 10.

Runners will race onto Holcomb road, then onto Allen, and around Clarkston's back roads. Then, they'll race back onto Holcomb and run through the finish line at Depot Park. Deanna Hart, who is organizing the event, expects 200 to 300 runners.

Lunch with cause

At the end of January, the agents of Real Estate One in downtown Clarkston got together at their Lunch for A Cause.

According to REO's Kevin McCourt, four times a year agents bring a dish to pass, and invite friends and family to lunch. Everybody makes a donation, which is then presented to a local charity. McCourt, of Clarkston, said funds will be donated to A Space To Dream.
