Updates!

The office is fully open!  Your cooperation during the past couple of years has been greatly appreciated!  

The Township's new website is currently being developed and staff is excited for upgrades that will be available to our residents.  Goals will be to have reservations for Township facilities to be done on line as well as building permits.

The Township will also be launching an "Engage Williamstown" site where you will be able to weigh in on issues and projects within the Township.

Instead of Spring Clean-up this year we will be following last year with collection of certain items during recycling.  We found that there was less congestion and it was easier for residents and staff.  The schedule will be out soon!

As always, your ideas and suggestions on how we can improve service are welcome.

Township Supervisor
