CDBG Public Hearing Set for February Board Meeting
Armada Township will be receiving $90,000 in CDBG award money this year. Last year the Village of Armada gave the township $41,500 of their CDBG money to go toward a new parking lot for the township's senior center. The township will use that money plus some of its own 2015 award money to complete the parking lot project this summer. The purpose for the public hearing is so community non-profit groups can offer input on how the township could award its money in the community to have the greatest impact. Federal guidelines require priority be given to projects that primarily benefit low-to moderate-income families, or which aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight.The public hearing will begin promptly at 7 p.m. on February 11, 2015. If you cannot attend the public hearing and want your views know, you can submit them in writing to the clerk's office by mail or in person. The township will most likely have money beyond the parking lot to spend on other projects. The deadline to submit applications for CDBG projects to the county by March 2, 2015.

2015 Limestone Application
It was decided at the January board meeting that this year's limestone will be applied to the following sections of road: 33 Mile road between Armada Ridge and Romeo Plank, Coon Creek between Pratt and Bordman and any remaining materials will be applied on Coon Creek south of Armada Center. The supervisor submitted a map showing the previous years applications. Supervisor Paterek said there are approximately 47 miles of rural roads in the township and we've been able to apply limestone through the county's limestone share program to about 15-20 miles of our total.
