Officials' misconduct - Mt. Pleasant, MI City Administration

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Someone is Lying

Is it the city's Director of Community Services, the city's Legal Counsel or the city's Independent Contractor?

Community services director Bill Mrdeza asserts city's legal counsel advised that authority for implementation of the recently named 'Administrative Waiver' process exists.

Consultant Doug Piggott, Rowe Professional Sevices Company, maintains that an ordinance amendment is required to create authorization for the 'Administrative Waiver' process.

Clues to liars' identity:

City officials are unable to reference state or local statutes that authorize their 'Administrative Waiver' process.

City officials contracted Piggott/Rowe to develop ordinance language that would authorize their 'Administrative Waiver' process.

MICHIGAN ZONING ENABLING ACT 125.3604(7) The ordinance shall establish procedures for the review and standards for approval of all types of variances.
