Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner Jim Nash is joining Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson and many other local and regional leaders in strongly supporting the Village of Ortonville with its efforts to pass a bond proposal this November to finance and build a sewer system and wastewater treatment facility for the community.
“For the long term health of the residents and families of Ortonville, as well as the economic vitality and future of the Village, we need to replace failing septic systems with a modern sewer system,” said Jim Nash, Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner. “This is a smart investment that will protect the integrity of Kearsley Creek and allow the community to thrive and prosper,” he added.
The Village Council President and Village Manager have joined longtime residents and community advocates, including Ron Sutton (Hall of Fame recipient) and Lois Robbins (2015 Citizen of the Year) to advocate for this ballot issue, which will spread the costs for the critical infrastructure over the forty year life of the bond. They have joined business owners and school leaders to endorse the November 3rd ballot question. They all acknowledge the need to protect our environment and the quality of life for Ortonville residents and their children, friends, relatives, and visitors.
