ROULETTE — The paving and milling of Kim Hill Road will most likely be postponed, Roulette supervisor Jeremy Morey announced during the last township meeting.

He said supervisors want to make sure it is done correctly the first time with all the sluice pipes in proper condition and draining correctly, as well as complete some daylighting on the road.

This was the top road project for the township, but because of finances and personnel changes, it is unlikely to be completed this year.

“We had big plans, thinking we had X amount of dollars but the money definitely is not going to go as far as we thought,” supervisor Brian Drabert said.

Supervisors accepted the resignation of James Ostrom as supervisor and township employee and removed him from the signature card and expense card.

Supervisors received a letter of interest from William Grandin to fill the vacant supervisor position. Grandin previously served as supervisor for 24 years.

Grandin said he can help the supervisors for the short vacant period and can help with the transition of bringing on a new supervisor.

Letters of interest were being accepted until the day after the meeting, so supervisors couldn’t appoint someone during the meeting. A special meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20 to appoint a replacement. Morey said he and Drabert decided they would not appoint any of the candidates who will be on the ballot in November.
