Coronavirus updates

The office will be fully open beginning July 1st.  Your cooperation during the past year has been greatly appreciated!  We ask that you please wear a mask if you are not fully vacinated.

We hope that you will continue to take advantage of the drop boxes and website for your business.  I would appreciate any ideas you may have to improve the website as the Township is considering a new and improved site to better serve our residents.

The Township Hall is now available for rental request! 

It will be nice seeing you again and hope that we will be back to the new normal for good.
