News and Announcements

Please know we are Chipping and Sealing many portions around the township and have multiple trucks on the road for this process.  We partner with other townships to assist in this process so you will see other trucks from other townships in our area.  Please be mindful of this as you travel about, delays are short, but nonetheless, they are delays and we ask for your patience and safety for our workers and other road users. 
 Thank you.

School time is just around the corner...August 21, so please watch for increased traffic, buses, and children in and about our roadways.  

We are aware of the slip occurring just past Brown Road and LaFollette Roads and have secured a contractor to repair this in the near future.  
We are also aware of the slippage near the bottom of Howard Hill nearer the intersection of Bryson and Howard.  This slip is also on our list to repair shortly.  We are getting ready for Chip and Seal, as well as working around the township on needed road maintenance and a lot of culvert issues due to the torrential rains and inclement weather.  Thank you for your diligence and patience.  Appreciatively, Lyle and Ann.  

*Open Trustee Seat*
Probate Judge Robert Stewart will be making a decision regarding the open trustee seat of Gene Hines shortly.  He is in possession of the documents and resolution to move this forward. Information forthcoming.

We would love to have another Tire Disposal Day as we've had in the past.
Funding is on a different cycle and won't be awarded till sometime this summer and there will be a change to the way tires are collected.  the grant will likely require a $cost$ to drop off the tire.
