School Resource Officer Proposal Made to Blissfield Schools
With all the news recently about school shootings, the Village Council has delivered a proposal to the Blissfield Community School Board Superintendent. The proposal regards sharing the costs to have a dedicated School Resource (Police) Officer for our schools. The proposals also included information compiled by Police Chief Dale Greenleaf about a Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant from the federal government, that could be used to cover the costs for a School Resource Officer for the first 3 years of the position.
The Village also sent letters to Township Boards from the four townships that send students to Blissfield Schools. These letters inquire about those Townships helping fund such a proposal.
The Blissfield School Board has told the village that they will begin considering the proposal at their April 16 Board meeting. The Village expects to hear from the School Board shortly after that meeting.
WATER HYDRANT FLUSHING
The Blissfield Public Works Dept. will be conducting a village-wide flushing of water hydrants, from Sunday, April 1 until Friday, April 6, as well as from Sunday, April 8 until Friday, April 13, to remove sediment that accumulates in the water lines. The flushing will be conducted between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. each day tot minimize any inconvenience to customers.
During the hydrant flushing, residents may notice the water has a rusty appearance. The water is safe to use and drink. Residents should check the color of the water before doing laundry. If the water is rusty, run the cold water for a short time to clear the lines. If you have any questions, please contact the Village Office at 486-4347.
