Old Business


  • Annual St. Marys Cement mining plan review.  Ulrich distributed to the PC members a copy of St. Marys Cement's annual plan report with the Performance Engineering map.  Ulrich informed the PC that James "Murray" Gillis of Anichelle, Inc., has reviewed the plan on behalf of the Township and found no issues or areas of concern.  After further discussion, Thompson moved, with Fratrick seconding, that the mining plan be approved by the PC and that the PC recommend to the Township board that the plan be accepted.  A vote was taken and the motion carried unanimously.


New Business


  • The PC was contacted by Site Planning regarding a proposed hospital parking area expansion, but nothing was submitted to the PC so there was nothing to review or discuss.
