Update on Road Projects;
Our annual piggy-back brining of our 51 miles of unpaved road was completed by the Rd. Comm. @ an estimated cost to the township of $ 35,530.
The paving of N. Victory Corner Rd. from Decker Rd north to south branch Lincoln River bridge is slowly progressing . The delays have been caused by underground utility issues. ( Frontier Communications lines don’t have a consistent depth and may have to be moved) The Rd. Comm. manager ( Wayne Schoonover)stated that the road may end up getting paved and the completion of the ditching may occur at a later date after the utility lines are moved. He assured the township that the paving would be completed this year.
The estimated cost of the paving to the township was $117614 minus a 40 % cost share from the Rd. Comm. Victory Township was able to do the project because of Hanson Rd. getting paved and the asphalt subcontractors offering Amber and Victory Townships an asphalt reduction cost from the normal $85 ton to $54 a ton( saving the township roughly $40,000 in paving costs.
8/1/2017: Gravel has been applied from Hanson Rd. north to Fisher Rd.(6 inch base for Victory Township) The gravel base from Fisher Rd. north to south branch of Lincoln River will be completed The week of August 7th with paving to follow. (RD Comm. Estimates)
The paving of North Victory Road north from Decker Rd to the south branch of Lincoln River was completed in early Sept. The remaining tree stumps were removed and miner ditching was completed after Frontier Comm. moved their underground utility lines on the west portion of the Road.
The project will be complete after grass seeding and mulch.
Victory Corner Rd. project was completed

Suzanne S. of Sunset Bluff Resort organized a meeting about nuisance lake vegetation affecting Upper Hamlin Lake. Two biologist from The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians (Allison Smart and Josh Beaulaurier ) were asked to attend . After much discussion Brian Zimmerman(property owner in Hamlin Shoals) suggested a boating channel marked by buoys be established from Hamlin Shoals to the Meyer Road line. The idea is to have concentrated boater traffic through that channel to keep the vegetation in check.
After the meeting Wayne Andersen contacted MDEQ,MDNR,&Mason County Sheriff Marine patrol regarding the proposal. All agencies feel this is a viable solution to establish a navigable boater route. Brian Zimmerman(property owner in Hamlin Shoals)agreed to plot the coordinates of the channel by GPS the weekend of Oct.5-7th.Feel free to provide input to this preliminary proposal.
