WATERVLIET — Watervliet Township trustees got an update Monday night on an ambitious effort to broaden the makeup of the citizen appointees who staff the various boards that oversee important – but often low-profile – civic operations.

In addition, Dave Vollrath, with the Berrien County Board of County Commissioners, provided details of a pending plan to erect an emergency-services radio antenna atop the Spectrum Health Lakeland hospital in Watervliet, in order to remedy what has been an ongoing signal problem in the area.
