Leelanau Almanac for the Week of September 7-13, 2006

Sprinters in the Tour de Leelanau

News from the Week

The week’s top story was a Leelanau Enterprise report that the executive committee of the Leelanau County Board of Commissioners would consider a recommendation from the county’s Solid Waste Council to approve imposition of a $29 per-household fee in the seven townships where voters approved the surcharge and ask for a voluntary payment of the fee from residents of the townships that rejected the measure. According to this week’s paper, it sounds as if this plan is moving forward. We also link to an interesting feature on Leelanau Independent Women for Democratic Action (LIWDA), a non-partisan, progressive, political action group.
