Township police department promotes three to sergeant  

The rules prohibit the construction of wind turbines in residential areas, set noise-level limitations and also mandate the deconstruction of such turbines when they have gone unused for six months. Turbine towers are also banned from the area near Mettetal Airport in neighboring Canton Township.

There are three new sergeants in the Plymouth Township Police Department.

Daniel Kudra, Bryan Schaefer and David Hayes were formally promoted by Chief Tom Tiderington at the start of Tuesday’s township Board of Trustees meeting, to applause from their families, trustees and members of the public who attended.

Kudra is an 11-year veteran and was the department’s officer of the year for 2005; Shaeffer is a 13-year-veteran; and Hayes is a 23-year veteran and was the department’s officer of the year for 2007.

The promotions follow the retirements, in recent months, of five township officers, including three command officers. Retired Sgt. Steve Rapson, the most recent retirement, was also recognized Tuesday.

Tiderington also publicly congratulated Lt. Cal Lauria, who was recently promoted from the rank of sergeant. The position was opened by the retirement of Lt. Bob Smith, who was the department’s assistant chief, last summer.

Windmill rules

The board on Tuesday passed a zoning ordinance amendment that regulates the construction and use of energy-generating wind turbines in the township. The vote was 6-0; Trustee Mike Kelly was absent.

The rules prohibit the construction of wind turbines in residential areas, set noise-level limitations and also mandate the deconstruction of such turbines when they have gone unused for six months.

Turbine towers are also banned from the area near Mettetal Airport in neighboring Canton Township.

Developers of wind energy systems will be required to provide proof of sufficient wind resources at any proposed turbine site, with documentation of such wind power going back at least a year.

The ordinance amendment was previously approved by the township’s Planning Commission.

“We’re trying to be proactive because they are noisy,” said Trustee Kay Arnold, the board’s liaison to the Planning Commission.
