The Huron Township LDFA welcomes its newest member Terry Riopelle to the Local Development Finance Authority commission. Her first meeting was February20 and she replaced commissioner Marlene Krause who was recently elected for a position on the board of Trustees for Huron Township. Since the office was vacated mid-term, the position was appointed by the Chairman and will be completed at the end of this year. She may add her name to the ballot for the 2014 elections.
Ms. Riopelle brings financial expertise to the group and also holds the position of Treasurer for the Huron Township Rotary Club and she is the chair of the Huron Township recreation commission.
The Local Development Finance Authority district was established by the Huron Township Board after careful study by the Township Board, staff, and consulting engineers based upon the belief that any successful efforts of Huron Charter Township to revitalize its economic base will rely heavily on the willingness, capability and timeliness of its municipal structure to encourage, initiate, propose and participate in the development of new and renovated public and private uses, and projects that will bring about physical improvement, retain or create jobs, retain businesses, attract new businesses and increase the Township’s tax basis.
The LDFA’s mission is to provide for those public improvements necessary or desirable to facilitate, promote and sustain industrial development within the established district of the Local Development Finance Authority of Huron Township.
