GHT Board to discuss shooting incident Monday

Officials are expected to discuss the recent Cutter Park shooting incident during a work session of the Grand Haven Township Board on Monday. Township Manager Bill Cargo said they will ask Ottawa County Sheriff Gary Rosema to give an update on their investigation, as well as talk to the township attorney about any legalities that might surface on the township side. The work session is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the Township Hall, 13300 168th Ave. The regular board meeting is at 7 p.m.

Cargo said the issue is not scheduled to be discussed at the actual board meeting, but there is usually a time when the public can speak on non-agenda items.

One man was injured and several homes were damaged in the Cutter Park subdivision by bullets believed to have been fired from the North Ottawa Rod and Gun Club on the morning of Sept. 29. The subdivision is located between Lincoln and Ferris streets, about a half-mile east of the gun club.

The OCSD reported that a 30-year-old Grand Haven man was hit by a bullet in the arm while doing contracting work at a home on Acacia Drive. Homeowners hearing about the incident checked around their homes and bullets were recovered at eight residences, reported Lt. Mark Bennett.

Concerned residents held a neighborhood meeting on Oct. 2, then showed up in force at a regular meeting of the North Ottawa Rod and Gun Club Board of Directors the next evening.
