Planning Commission Meeting

Tuesday, August 23rd @ 7:00pm
During the last week of April 2022 our new township SmartStat speed board has been deployed.  It was first used on Leonard in Lamont and will set in other areas of the township to remind motorists of their speed.  If you have a request for the placement of this device please contact the township office.

Truck Route Concerns

Over the last several months a few residents have contacted the township office regarding commercial vehicles operating in violation of the township ordinance.  The sheriff’s deputies are continuing to enforce the ordinance, however through that process we have discovered some deficiencies in our present ordinance .  We are working with our township attorney to restate our truck route ordinance.  Please bear with us as we work through this process.  I will keep you informed.  Thank you for your patience- Mark R. Bennett TCT Supervisor.
