Many Reason For Health Assessment

The assessment was done in collaboration with Sturgis Hospital, Three Rivers Health and the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency, in addition to other area organizations.

The second reason for the health assessment was because of the Affordable Care Act asking for some information from not for profit hospitals.
Also in relation to the Affordable Care Act information, the Health Department, as part of their accreditation, needed to show they had engaged the public through an assessment.
The third reason was because Community Mental Health had applied for a planning grant for a possible health center.
Christner says there was a good response to the health assessment. She says 620 individuals filled out the questionnaires.
We'll have some of the results of the survey during our future newscasts.

|Sturgis DPS Warns Of Freezing Pipes (2/28/14)|
Sturgis DPS Warns Of Freezing Water Pipes
(STURGIS) – Cold weather is once again invading our area, which means there is the chance of frozen water pipes.
The Sturgis Department of Public Services is asking residents to remain conscious of freezing water lines. With the freeze-thaw-freeze cycle that has occurred over the last couple of weeks and the depth of the frost throughout the City, conditions are again suitable for water lines to freeze.
In order to help citizens prevent their water lines from freezing, the City of Sturgis recommends that residents allow a slow stream of water about the size of a pencil to run continuously from a single faucet.
While this will not guarantee that water lines won't freeze, it is the best possible measure. Since initial calls to run water were issued, the City has seen a decrease in frozen water service calls coming in.
Residents should also watch for symptoms of frozen or freezing water service lines. They include a slight decrease in water pressure; water becoming rusty or cloudy and extremely cold water.
If you suspect frozen water lines, please call the Department of Public Services at 651-2879 between 7:30 AM and 4 PM or you can call 467-4195 after business hours.

|Mendon Millage Passes (2/26/14)|
Mendon School Millage Passes
(MENDON) – Voters in the Mendon School District spoke out in favor of their students on Tuesday.
By an almost 2 to 1 margin, voters approved a millage increase of one mill to do upgrades around the district. There were 314 Yes votes to 160 No votes on the proposal. That's 474 total votes cast out of 2729 registered voters in the Mendon School District.
The money will be used for District wide technology updates, the purchase of new school buses and for work at the Elementary and Junior/Senior High School buildings.
The millage request is similar to one that was passed by the Centreville School District last fall. Kuhlman says the Mendon request was put together so that it would have a low impact on the tax payers.
During Phase One of the millage, which will begin this year, $4.2 million dollars will be raised. Phase Two of the millage will bring in $3.3 million dollars and Phase Three $1.87 million.
Kuhlman says the next step is for the School Board to hire a company to help oversee the three phases and to start looking for a company to do the tech work in the District.

Mendon Schools Asking For 1 Mill
(MENDON) – The Mendon School District is asking their residents for some assistance.
The School district is asking for one mill to help them with a three phase master plan which will take place over the next eight years. Mendon Superintendent Rob Kuhlman the three areas the District will be addressing with this millage are technology upgrades, bus replacements and upgrades to the school buildings.
Much like the millage that was approved by the Centreville School District last year, Kuhlman, who is the Centreville Superintendent as well, says the Mendon millage is structured so that it won't be a burden on taxpayers.
All total the millage would bring in $9.2 million for the Mendon District when they are ready for each phase to be done.
Kuhlman says the average market value for a home in the Mendon School District is $100,000. By passing this millage, the average annual tax increase would only be $50.
The polls will be open next Tuesday, February 25 at the Mendon Township Hall.
