Hills City Council Honors Employees, Others
Officials recognize police officer and firefighter of the year, employees and former public servants.
Employees will be recognized during a special ceremony starting at 5 p.m. at the Costick Center, and the employee of the year will be honored during the meeting at city hall, which starts at 7:30 p.m. Officials will also present resolutions expressing appreciation to former State Sen. Gilda Jacobs, who was term-limited last year, and former County Commissioner Steven Schwartz, who was defeated in November's election.
The council's regular agenda also includes a request to transfer a liquor license from House of Ing of Farmington Hills, Inc. to K & H Chen Investments, Inc. located at 37682 W. 12 Mile Road. The license is currently in escrow.
Officials will also consider a partnership agreement with Illuminating Concepts, a Farmington-Hills based business, to install and maintain LED lighting on 10 Mile Road. The LED lamps can be turned on or off, or dimmed, wirelessly, and the controls can also be used for an audio system and public alert beacon. The poles may also support cameras.
The $30,000 cost of the pilot project will be taken from $791,300 in Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Funds, which the city received in 2009.
Also on the agenda are appointments to committees and commissions and consideration of a Police Department Freedom of Information Act appeal. Officials may also enter into a closed session immediately following their regular meeting to discuss pending litigation.
Time for public comment is scheduled at every meeting. For additional information or a complete agenda, visit fhgov.com
