From the Desk of Supervisor Bloomquist

The Township recently contracted with Mannik Smith Group to provide the Township with an in depth report on Township Roads. I encourage everyone to take the time to review the report. The Township Board is investigating a ballot initiative to bring the standards of our roads up to residents' standards. This is not an easy decision and one that the Board will be asking for your input on. There is a new page under departments dedicated to "Roads." You will be able to access the report there as well as a FAQ sheet, map along with past and current road projects.

The Board will be hosting a public forum on October 17th to gather public input on how the Township should move forward on this issue. As you may be aware, this is a topic that Townships across the state have been grappling with and the Board recognizes that Township roads are an asset that deserve our attention.

Please feel free to contact the Township with your questions and concerns. The full report can be found here.

~ Wanda Bloomquist,
Township Supervisor
