'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

As expected, the Collier Township Board of Commissioners approved a 10-year comprehensive plan.

The unanimous approval came after the final public hearing last week.

Township residents were given a chance to voice any concerns they had about the plan, which lays out a foundation for Collier's next 10 years.

Gail Neustadt was the only resident to speak. He said he attended all three public hearings and numerous planning commission meetings to voice his concern about the plan's connectivity and trails within the community.

Collier officials want the community to grow with the times, and here are some ways they plan to go about it. Their plan includes six main goals and objectives:

• Manage growth and housing development for Collier's future.

• Preserve the township's rural character.

• Promote connectivity throughout the township and encourage diverse transportation.

• Encourage development through policy.

• Maintain the culture of responsible use of public resources.

• Create a consistent identity to promote within the area.

Immediately following the hearing, the commissioners held their regular meeting, at which time they voted unanimously to accept the comprehensive plan.

They also approved the payment of bills for services, totaling $145,613. They also approved a payment of $60,005 for various capital expenditures.
