My Town Sparta: Council backs altering village boundaries
My Town Sparta: Council backs altering village boundaries

SPARTA, Mich.—The Village of Sparta is poised to become slightly larger.

During its regular meeting last week, the village council approved a resolution to incorporate 1.24 acres of township property on Sparta Avenue into the village.  The property is adjacent to Cascade Die Casting Group, Inc.  The company purchased the property to expand its facilities, but it needs the section of land included within the village limits in order for it to be eligible for tax incentives.

Interim Village Manager Sharon J. DeLange says the resolution must be approved by the village attorney before it is sent on to the Kent County Board of Commission for final consideration.
