It was a short meeting tonight.  There were three speakers during the public comment period.
First up was Larry Ford from the Birch Run/Bridgeport Chamber Of Commerce with some updates for the communities.  The "Best Of" Awards dinner and ceremony for the Chamber will be held on February 17th at the Candlelight Banquet Center.  I attended last year and can tell you it is a very nice event and I look forward to going this year.  A Bridgeport resident spoke about how beautiful the flowers were this year  and also the holiday lights at the historic bridge.  I agree with her 100%.  She also talked about having a signal installed at the corner at the corner of Dixie and State/Baker Rd for pedestrians to cross there at the intersection.  Another resident spoke to say Thank You to the Bridgeport Police Department for their quick response and recovery of items that were stolen from his business.
During the board member comments Augie Tausend spoke about new meters that Consumers Energy will be installing in the township in 2016.  They are called Smart Meters.  I have been reading for several years some controversy surrounding the meters.  Some of the talk is pretty far out there in left field but some people seem to have normal arguments against them  I will try to round up all the pro's and con's involving the discussion.  Can't promise to get it done right away though because I have some family obligations right now that take first priority in my life.

Here is a informational brochure that was provided by Consumers.  Click on the photo to see a larger image.
