Stacking the Deck – Welcome to the return of a Company Town.

Two existing Planning Commission members who had terms that expired but due to negligence of process were never officially re-appointed were nominated for re-appointment,  1 was re-appointed one was not.
The Board appointed recently appointed Trustee Board member Brian Kissell as the ex officio member.
The supervisor appointed an additional 4 members, out of 7 applications the board members voted for all pro-wind and denied any others, limited discussions on any of the appointments.
Members were appointed to a split of 3 years and 1 year terms.
–  This does not follow Michigan Zoning Laws they should have been appointed to the remaining terms of the members they replaced –

MICHIGAN PLANNING ENABLING ACT, Act 33 of 2008, 125.3815  Sec. 15. (2)  … If a vacancy occurs on a planning commission, the vacancy shall be filled for the unexpired term in the same manner as provided for an original appointment. 

The Remaining 2 existing Planning Commissioners resigned.
