Title VI - Non-Discrimination Plan
At the May 29, 2014 meeting the village council adopted the Title VI Non-Discrimination Plan.

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 200d), related statutes and regulations provide that no person shall on the ground of race, color, national origin, gender, or disabilities be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal funds. 

Filing information:  Petitions are due on Tuesday, July 22 with Richland Township Clerk for the village.  All petitions must be "Village Nonpartisan”, and must contain at least 6 valid signatures of registered voters within the village.  Richland Township Clerk will have the petitions and Affidavits of Identity.  
All new village candidates must file a Statement of Organization  for their campaign committee.  This is true even if they do not intend to spend any money.  All current officials should have a Statement of Organization already on file, but if there are any changes that should be made, an amended Statement should be filed.

Community Hall
Be a part of History

Don’t be left out. Donors are still welcome and needed and urged to help the project over the finish line. Unexpected architectural upgrades and engineering needs have stretched the original budget. Those wanting to help are urged to do so soon and are reminded that donations are fully tax deductible. Checks should be made out to Village of Richland, memo note "Rescue the Community Hall”, and sent to PO Box I, Richland, MI 49083.

Richland Community Hall
Move In Date -- May 1st


The estimated completion date has been set back a month due to some unexpected architectural upgrades and engineering needs.  A number of changes had to be made as work progressed and were best done while the building was opened up and access was available.  As you can see, the crew has been hard at work to complete the building.  Hickory Builders are being extremely thorough and conscientious, and maintaining very high levels of quality.   

Community Hall
Workers have installed the ceiling; painting is expected to begin next week.  Volunteers from Gull Lake Rotary and residents of the Village have been hard at work painting the trim.
