The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality introduced Janet Michaluk as their new coordinator during the Downtown Development Authority meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
Michaluk will act as a resource to the authority and the community, providing information and environmental developments within the Delhi township.
The regions that Michaluk has been assigned to are Gratiot County, Lapeer County, Genesse County, Shiawassee County, South Central Prosperity Region and Livingston County.
“I’m here to get out to the community and be a resource,” said Michaluk during the meeting.
Michaluk previously worked for AKT Peerless, a company that provides environmental consulting services.
Members also discussed the purchase of property on both Holt Road and Cedar Street during the meeting. The property was purchased to improve the unauthorized landfill that was previously there and to clean up the area.
Another topic was the construction of a trailhead leading from Holt Road.
“We just need to put together a plan that makes economic sense,” said C. Howard Haas, Director, about the park.
This was also the last meeting for township supervisor C.J. Davis, who is stepping down from the position in November.
“I am here for my final goodbye, it’s been a pleasure,” Davis said.
