Please Keep Sidewalks Clear
For many children and adults having a clear sidewalk to get to bus stops or the grocery store is critical. It can be tough with the snowplow shoving snow up from the street but we're hoping people can work together to keep it done. If you have a snow blower or can handle the workout, help a neighbor, if you hire a plow service to clear your driveway try to find one that will also do your sidewalk. If you can't shovel see if you can pay someone in the neighborhood or offer to bake them cookies or trade for some time dog sitting or other service. If you belong to a church or other organization you can identify those who need help and create a snow angel group to go out together to clear their sidewalks.
If you have good ideas or examples form other communities on how the township can keep sidewalks clear, contact a Township board member to let them know.
