Over the past few months our TEAM has drafted a 2016 Action Plan and Strategic Plan including Township-wide projects. The Township Board has spent hours vetting the goals and objectives to create a unified blueprint for 2016. I want to give credit to the board and staff for their hard work, passion and determination put into this massive undertaking. We have not seen anything like this yet and we look forward to our commitment that our efforts are in line with continuing to make Meridian a Community of Choice.
These projects go above and beyond the day-to-day activities and truly showcase the dedication Township employees bring to service the community. We are fortunate to have steady leadership and I admire the commitment to Meridian Township. On January 26, 2016 the Township Board approved these plans and we have started to roll up our sleeves.
Working together with residents, elected and appointed officials and staff, our projects and efforts aim to continue making Meridian a Community of Choice. This cannot be done without the hundreds of volunteers and supporters.
We are proud of our customer service response. Last year we had over 1,000 requests for service and hundreds of timely responses to residential and visitor inquiries. We are grateful for the numerous opportunities offered to encourage and increase engagement within the Township. We encourage you to take a few moments to look over our goals for 2016 and to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
Reflecting on 2015 some of our major goals accomplished were the new Central Fire Station, installation of the new Okemos Pedestrian Pathway Bridge, and the Municipal Parking Lot Repaving with new energy efficient LED lights. We look forward to 2016.
