Although dealing with shut-offs and turn-ons of service is not unusual for municipalities, having to do them repeatedly for some residents can be time consuming and costly.

That is why the Akron Village Council is contacting legal counsel to help address the issue of water shut-off and turn back on fees for repeat offenders.

The council is considering implementing a $50 fee for doing that for the first and second time.

If, a third shut-off and reinstatement is done three times out of a six-month cycle, the fee would be $100.

Hopes are to have the language on the proposal completed and ready to be implemented effective June 1, according to village Clerk Shari Hadaway.

In other matters, Police Chief Matt Simerson plans to implement an auxiliary officer program for youths who are interested in possible law-enforcement careers. He is in the process of developing guidelines for the program.

Simerson also reported that at the request of Akron - Fairgrove School Superintendent Diane Foster a street route change on Lynn Street for drop-off in the morning and pickup in the afternoon at the elementary school to be one-ways starting this month.

The request was made because of congestion with cars, buses and children.

- The Michigan Department of Transportation money is available for street closures. The village can receive $10,000 for each local/major street to get supplies to close streets.
