Trustees approve tax exemption ordinance renewal

BIG RAPIDS TWP. — Members of the Big Rapids Township Board of Trustees approved the renewal of the 2018 Ryan Creek limited dividend housing association (LDHA) tax exemption ordinance during their monthly meeting Tuesday evening.

The purpose of this 10-year ordinance is to allow Ryan Creek Apartments to offer low-income housing to tenants.

According to the ordinance, the company which owns and operates Ryan Creek Apartments, Ryan Creek LDHA Limited Partnership, will pay an annual service charge to the township for public services in lieu of taxes.

Also during the meeting, trustees accepted Phil Keating’s letter of resignation from the planning commission and added Bruce Sczepaniak to the utilities committee.
