Watershed Voice sent out questionnaires to local candidates running for Three Rivers City Commission, St. Joseph County Commission, Three Rivers Board of Education, and Glen Oaks Community College Board of Trustees. In the days leading up to the election on Tuesday, November 8, Watershed will publish the questionnaires in the order they are received. Danielle Moreland, who is running as a write-in candidate for Three Rivers At-Large City Commissioner, filled out WSV’s questionnaire. Here are her answers.

The Three Rivers City Commission Tuesday approved the use of over $1 million of the city’s fund balance to demolish the old Three Rivers Hospital, which City Manager Joe Bippus says has become “a public nuisance” after falling into disrepair decades ago. The project is expected to begin in the spring, and take approximately six months to complete.

City Manager Joe Bippus announced Friday that Ronald “Scott” Boling will be the next Three Rivers Police Chief, succeeding longtime Police Chief Tom Bringman who retired in November. Boling most recently served as police chief of the Schoolcraft Police Department where Bippus has previously been employed as a patrol officer in addition to his duties as city manager. It is unclear whether Bippus still serves in any capacity with the Schoolcraft PD.
