3.     ADOPT TOWNSHIP ORDINANCE NO. 338, DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY
       ORDINANCE

Jason Friedman of the Planning Department was present to answer questions. In response to Mr. Fitzgerald, he
stated that the statute called for 8-12 members on the board and they would be using the entire 12 members. He
also believed that a citizens advisory council would be put in place.

Mr. Fitzgerald noted that he would like to be a part of the authority board.

Motion by Mr. Fitzgerald, supported by Ms. Meltzer, to introduce for the second reading and direct publication
of the Downtown Development Authority Ordinance No. 338, as presented., to become effective immediately
upon publication. Roll Call: Ayes-Fitzgerald, Meltzer, Steiner, Cannon, Sowerby, Tomlinson. Nays-None.

4.     REQUEST NEW LIQUOR LICENSE FROM 2000 CENSUS QUOTA: CLINTON ROBIN, INC.

Scott Edwards was present on behalf of the Petitioner. He stated that the project will be a family-style
restaurant with approximately 50 part time and 50 full time employees. He stated that the owners had a number
of other restaurants of this type and took their alcohol responsibility very seriously.

Mr. Cannon asked how much money had been expended in defending the zoning suit the petitioners had
brought against the Township.

Mr. Dolan stated that he did not have a calculation of the actual fees paid by the Township. In response to Mr.
Fitzgerald’s question, Mr. Dolan informed the Board that they needed to act on both of the requests in the
correspondence from the petitioner.

Chief Ernst stated that the petitioner had met all the requirements for a liquor license and he had discussed the
Roseville restaurant with the Roseville Chief of Police.

Chief Ernst further stated that in the past the Township has awarded the quota licenses in several different ways.
 He preferred a special hearing for applicants with the Board making the final decision. He also felt the
Township should have a plan for awarding the licenses. He pointed out that there were 3 others interested in the
licenses and there should be some planning.

Ms. Meltzer asked Mr. Dolan if the transferor would be affected by the decision of the Board.

Mr. Dolan explained that the Township was supposed to be acting on issues of health, safety and welfare and
not on behalf of the petitioner or any person the petitioner may have business dealings with. Mr. Dolan did not
believe that a suit brought by the transferor would succeed.

Mr. Sowerby asked Chief Ernst about the other individuals who have shown interest in the quota licenses.

Chief Ernst stated that the requests were currently existing buildings and not new construction.

______________________________

Mr. Sowerby felt that the fact of the new construction by the petitioner, what he believed was a valid request
and since there was no policy in place the Board should consider the award of the license.

Mr. Cannon believed the reason was flawed and reminded the Board that the petitioner sued the Township,
costing the Township money.

Mr. Steiner stated that he had been in favor of the project but was not in favor of giving a license to the
petitioner. He felt that a procedure for awarding the quota licenses should be put in place.

Mr. Edwards stated that the consent judgment compelled his client to complete the project by a set date and any
further delays will have to be considered by the petitioner as they may not be able to comply with the consent
judgment.

Motion by Mr. Sowerby, supported by Mr. Fitzgerald, to postpone action on the request for a new liquor license
from 2000 census quota for two weeks. Roll Call: Ayes-Sowerby, Fitzgerald, Steiner, Cannon, Meltzer,
Tomlinson. Nays-None. Absent-Hornung. Motion carried.

       OPTION FOR HOMEOWNERS TO UTILIZE A CREDIT CARD IN PAYMENT OF TAXES

Mr. Sowerby explained how the “Official Payment Corporation” program would work, pointing out the
advantages to the Township, and the convenience for those residents choosing to use a Visa or MasterCard
for payment of property taxes. He explained it would take approximately 2 months to get the program
running and would be in place as a method of payment for the 2002 winter tax collections.

8.     REQUEST EXTENSION OF TEMPORARY TRAILER-KNOLLWOOD COVE
       CONDOMINIUMS

Mr. Tomlinson was asked to read the correspondence from Knollwood Village Condominium Association dated
July 22, 2002 into the record.

Ms. Bednar stated that she had been at the site earlier in the day and none of the improvements had been made.
She suggested that the Board place a time frame of 90 days on the work to be done.

Mr. Fitzgerald felt that the Township should try to rectify the problem for the residents.

Marilyn Lambert a resident of Knollwood Village presented the Board with photographs of the condition of the
basin. She stated that it was a breeding ground for mosquitoes and was unsightly. She stated that there were no
other dry detention basins in the Township. She stated that the residents were told that it would be a pond and
were not given any notice when the site plan was changed to include the detention basin. She also pointed out
that the developer had collected premiums on certain lots. She believed that the dry basin devalued the
properties in the area and that the property owners would be asking for tax relief. She wanted the developer to
convert the basin into a pond with fountain and did not feel they should accept anything less than was in the
adjoining developments. She also stated that the residents were prepared to picket the developer.

Mr. Dolan pointed out that certain of the items were private issues between the owners and the developer. With
regard to the detention basin, it is to service Knollwood Cove and in the future other development in the area.
There were also jurisdictional issues with the Macomb County Public Works Department.

Earl Champagne of Knollwood Village stated he paid a premium for his lot and now it overlooks the basin. It
was his belief that it was a matter of greed on the part of the developer.

Gary Ellis of Knollwood Village stated that his patio is just a few feet from what he described as a mudhole. He
did not want to wait 90 days for the developer to do something. He felt it devalued his property.

Mr. Sowerby wanted the senior partners of Spalding DeDecker to come to the Board with an explanation of the
detention basin and its placement.

Motion by Mr. Sowerby, supported by Mr. Fitzgerald, to refer the matter to next Township Board meeting and
request the senior partners of Spalding DeDecker Associates to be at the meeting to answer questions as to how
this detention basin was built and who authorized it to be built an any other questions of the public, to receive
and file the correspondence dated July 29, 2002 from the Township Engineer, to place a 90 day time limit for
the site improvements and to direct the Township attorney to research the enforcement issues. Roll Call: Ayes-
Sowerby, Fitzgerald, Steiner, Cannon, Meltzer, Tomlinson. Nays-None. Absent-Hornung. Motion carried.

9.     RECOMMENDATION ON IMPLEMENTATION OF VISA OR MASTERCARD FOR PUBLIC
       PURCHASE OF TOWNSHIP SERVICES

It was pointed out that there was no contract for the service with Bank One and that the program would be
reviewed in six months. The Board was also informed that the rates proposed by Bank One were reasonable and
represented a nominal cost to the Township.

Ms. Walter stated that she had surveyed other communities and the increase in program use offset the fees.

Ms. Meltzer was concerned about individual taxpayers who did not use the service paying for it.

Mr. Troppens noted that the 2% could be factored into the services.

Mr. Sowerby felt that it was a cost of doing business and that it was successful in other communities and it was
what the public wanted.

If approved, the Township hoped it would be implemented in time for addition to the September Parks and
Recreation brochure.

Motion by Mr. Fitzgerald, supported by Mr. Steiner, to receive, file and concur with the correspondence dated
July 22, 2002 from the Budget-Ways & Means Committee and approve the implementation of credit cards for
the purchase of Township services and approve the use of Bank One and to review the program in six months.

10.    RECOMMENDATION ON BID AWARD FOR SOFTWARE ASSURANCE PACKAGE

Ms. Petik stated that after the bid specs had been sent out she found out that the Township could save additional
money by purchasing directly from Microsoft. It was recommended that the bids for the software be rejected.

Ms. Petik also discussed the telephone system. It was pointed out that by limiting the lines for Internet access
there would be more lines available for incoming and outgoing calls.

Mr. Fitzgerald stated that the Township was dealing with an antiquated system, and they would have to look at a
new system.

Sue Westlake encouraged the Board not to approve a menu-driven phone system where a caller could not speak
to an individual .
