The Township continues to approach other cable providers to inquire if they would be interested in coming into Waterford. Most recently, the Cable Commission approached Wide Open West (WOW). The response from the Senior VP was as follows:
"Several factors heavily influence the selection of our next community including it’s proximity to our existing system, the density of homes within the area, construction type (aerial vs. underground) and local business and tax incentives just to name a few. In terms of expansion, we have clearly defined expansion plans for the next 18 months and Waterford Township is not included."
Waterford Township does not prohibit other cable providers from offering service within the community. In fact, the Township encourages it. However, as stated above by WOW, the decision is not the Township's alone. Residents of Waterford may contact other cable providers to request service in the area; the more that do, the more inclined cable providers will be to consider Waterford Township as their next place of business.

A new community center would be designed to appeal to and accommodate residents with a variety of interests in every age group.

No. Waterford Township will be paying off a Building Bond in 2017 that funded the construction of the Police and Fire Department Buildings. In 2018, Waterford residents will be given an opportunity to approve the issuance of a bond to construct a new Community Center which would not increase property taxes. Residents would continue paying the same amount, or less, on their tax bill if the new bond is approved as they have been paying on their past tax bills for the existing bond.
The bond issuance is expected to appear on the August 2018 ballot
