ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich.—Plans to replace three boardwalks on Ada Drive will be delayed, after an accounting error.
In a letter to the township supervisor, planning director Jim Ferro says he discovered late last month that he made an error, overstating the Trail Fund balance at the start of the current fiscal year by about $100,000. This means the Trail Fund does not have enough money in it to pay for the $120,000 boardwalk replacement project previously budgeted for the year.
Ferro says the error came from including $99,170 in grant funding that actually went to the Kent County Road Commission, not Ada Township. He’ll present his budget update during the Ada Township board meeting Monday, June 9.
