Saginaw Twp. adopts hazard mitigation plan

By Cameron Kerkau

The Saginaw Township Board of Trustees approved the Saginaw County hazard mitigation plan for Saginaw Township as well as a 25 year wastewater service agreement between the Northwest Utility Authority and the City of Saginaw at its latest meeting on Monday, Oct. 9.

Spicer Group Inc., was contracted by Saginaw County to update its hazard mitigation plan in 2015. The plan was previously updated in 2008. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a hazard mitigation plan is intended to reduce the loss of life and property, human suffering, economic disruption, and disaster assistance costs resulting from natural disaster.

The 25 year wastewater service agreement is an updated version of the previous 25 year agreement between the NWUA and the City of Saginaw, which expired in 2016. The Townships of Saginaw, Zilwaukee, Kochville, and Carrollton are involved in the NWUA, and each township pays a portion of the cost to service its wastewater in the City of Saginaw based on its percentage of flow. According to Township Manager Rob Grose, Saginaw Township pays 52 percent of the cost.
