Service


The Township Service Department performs various statutory tasks on Township roads, as well as additional tasks as directed by the Board of Trustees.  The Service Department currently operates out of Township-owned space that is centrally located at 7996 Darrow Road in the Township.  The Service Department has a full array of vehicles and equipment to complete most tasks in-house, with remaining work completed by Township-supervised outside contractors.

Funding

 

The Township pays for Service Department expenses with funds from several sources, including a 0.80 mill continuing property tax levy (inside millage), gasoline taxes, motor vehicle license taxes, and investment interest.  Because current costs exceed levy proceeds and other revenues, those resources are supplemented by Township General Fund revenues.
