during snow emergencies to insure residents' access to emergency
services, so two passes are made quickly to open up the middle

township needs your help. Residents should not place obstructions,
such as large rocks, metal or wooden stakes, etc., along the edge
of the roadway and are urged to remove any impediments that present
dangers to motorists. Property owners may be subject to liability
in the event of an accident involving these obstructions. Residents
should not park on the roads during snow events. When plowing
your driveway, do not place the snow in the road. Snow should
be directed to your own property and not placed on the roads or
the property of others.
