Cemetery Levy Funds Working For Our Community

The cemetery levy has allowed the Township to replace aging mowers and employ additional seasonal workers to insure the seven cemeteries throughout the Township are well maintained. Trustees  approved the purchase of a new Gravely zero-turn mower in 2017, the third new mower in three years, to insure that the well-used equipment is in great working order and ready to meet the demands incurred in the cemeteries. Levy proceeds have also made possible  paving  the drives in the Lutheran and St. Michael's Cemeteries in 2016. Due to the visitations and active burial activities in these cemeteries, the improvement not only beautified the surroundings, but has provided a place to walk and drive free of the previous mud and large stones that the pavement has replaced. Special thanks to our community for recognizing the financial needs for the maintenance and preservation of our cemeteries.

 

New Ford F-550 now in service

The Township has taken delivery of a 2018 Ford F550 with a new dump bed for use by the Road Department. It replaces old Truck 69, a 2008 Ford, that had incurred substantial repair expenses. The new truck is an efficient-running diesel and should serve the Township well for years to come. The truck was obtained via a three year municipal lease-to-own. The bed was purchased from 2018 road funds.Trustees are also considering replacing the big International truck, which they have determined is no longer needed by the Township, and replacing if with a smaller Ford truck. This matter should be discussed further at the August monthly meeting.

Continuous updates to preserve the Administration Building

In addition to the new roof, flooring, windows, LED lighting and entry door that have been invested in since 2016 to maintain and preserve the main part of the Administration Building, additional security will be added to control building access and monitor building use. Proper maintenance of the building is a priority to preserve its useful life so that it may serve our community for year for come.
