Alpine Township Board to Meet at PARCC Side Clean Water Plant

There will be a special meeting of the Alpine Township Board of Trustees at 7:00 AM on Monday morning, June 4th at the PARCC Side Clean Water Plant, 4775 Coit N.E.

At the time on construction in 2008  this was the  largest plant of its kind in Michigan and 8th largest plant in the US and was designed to serve municipalities that make up the North Kent Sewer Authority: Plainfield Charter Township, Alpine Township, City of Rockford, Cannon Township and Courtland Township.    All public sewers from these 5 communities are being treated by PARCC Side.

The main purpose of the meeting is to see what the North Kent Sewer Authority has to offer Alpine Township in terms of maintaining and repairing Alpine Township sewers.  Maintenance is currently performed by the Kent County Department of Public Works but they will be discontinuing this service later this year.  Options for Alpine Township will be to bid out sewer maintenace to a local contractor, or have the maintenance performed by the North Kent Sewer Authority, which will already be performing maintenance on joint systems shared with all or several of the five communities.

This meeting is open to the public.  It is expected that the meeting will begin with a brief tour of the premises.
