Notes from the Supervisor  - Volume 6   December, 2023

Changing Faces
The Board would like to thank Joe who is retiring from the Cemetery Sexton position.  Joe has served Casco for so many years with that can-do attitude.  He has always been there to meet any challenge that mother nature has dished out and to take care of the needs of so many Casco’s family during times of sorrow.  Please join me in expressing gratitude and wish Joe all the best in his retirement.

Also, Karen who has been mowing and helped to keep the grounds in good shape is leaving us after many years of service.  Also, she was the Attendant at the Transfer Station.  It takes a special person to give up all their Saturdays and do such a great job to provide a service we all depend on and expect.  Also, please join me in wishing Karen well.

The positions have been posted and the Board hopes to fill them soon.

Broadband for All
The Allegan County Broadband Project will begin in August, 2023 with the goal of bringing high-speed internet to 10,000 addresses across Allegan County that are either unserved or underserved.  The expected cost of this service will be lower than other options currently available.  Currently, Engineers are working around the Township gathering data and designing the work.  A definite timeline is difficult but a significant portion of Casco should be complete by the end of 2024 and hopes to have Casco completed by 2025.  If you have further questions please call me at (616) 836-3298 or email

Tire Recycling
We had another successful free tire recycling day on October 28th.  We would like to thank all of you that participated.  Also, a big thank you to the Community Service group that provided the labor from the Allegan County Sheriff’s Department.  They did a great job loading tires and cleaning up.

Casco Township Deputy
Thank you for all you do!   Emergency call 911
Many of you know by now that Deputy Cano is the Casco Township Deputy.  I have witnessed many times when he has made a real difference for our citizens.  He is on duty 40 hours per week.  When he returns from being off- duty he is always good about following up with those non-emergency situations.
He has made it a priority to learn Casco Township and understand some of our unique problems.
For problems that are not urgent or if you have questions about situations call (269)673-0500 ext 4296
Or email  Remember all urgent and emergency situations call 911.

Senior Citizen Program
Last summer a survey was circulated to determine what activities were of interest to Casco residents. The surveys were geared to learn how our existing program could be more valuable to our seniors.

In addition, to the written surveys, I received calls and emails that expressed interest in participating with South Haven.  A few of the surveys stated that they did not want to join South Haven but the majority of the respondents were in favor of joining South Haven.   In total, we received input from around 75 to 80 people.

At our last meeting the board directed me to explore the possibility of participation by Casco to enable the use of those facilities by our residents.  Also, the board recognized the importance of continuing what we are currently doing as many of our services come from Allegan County.  Casco tax payers pay an Allegan County senior millage (.5 mills) and we want to make sure Casco residents are receiving services they need.  I will be working to see what may be possible and report back to the board at the December Meeting.

As always if you have any questions please give me a call (616) 836-3298 or email

Happy Holidays!
