July 21, 2010 - The Goodrich School Board re-elected —Michael Tripp president, Tim Zirnhelt vice president, Doug Tetmeyer secretary and Linda Jackson was named treasurer at the Monday School Board meeting. In addition, new school board trustee Niki Wiederman offically joined the board following the May election.

Board officers namedThe future of funding township law enforcement will now move to a second public hearing at 6:30 p.m., July 26 after a 4-1 vote to establish a special assessment district last month.

The township established a contract with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department about 15 years ago, funded by 1 mill from area property owners, netting about $330,000 per year. The millage was renewed in 2008. Due to steady increases in the police costs, in 2005 a special assessment of $50 for every improved lot and $25 for unimproved lots was implemented by the township board, which garnered about $163,000 for the deputies.

However, following the expiration of the special assessment this past January, coupled with a decline in property values which dropped the police revenue to $296,000, the township coffers now lack about $100,000 to cover the police contract this year.

On Monday night the board will hear public comment regarding the amount of a the special assesment and which property will be included.
