My Fellow Residents,
I wanted to share some important updates with you for the week:
- Listening campaign – Northville Township is committed to providing exceptional and professional police services to our diverse community. On Tuesday, Chief Tennies and I partnered with the Conference of Western Wayne to kick off the listening tour with the Western Wayne County NAACP at the Westland City Hall. Communities throughout western Wayne County will be hosting this event throughout the summer. Listening to our residents is critical to ensuring exceptional public safety services.
- The Township is vigorously opposing any request by Advanced Disposal to dump treated leachate into Johnson Creek. Johnson Creek is the last cold water trout stream in Wayne County and we are committed to protecting it.
- Our work with Wayne County has paid off. The Sheldon Road re-surfacing project has been completed and the roadway is open for travel. Lane striping is in progress.
- The Township will officially open the biking/hiking trails on the Eastern end of our 7 Mile Property to the public on Saturday, June 20, 2020. The Township is also pleased to announce that a contest to name the entire park is open to residents aged 10 to 110+ years. It is time the property had an official name following its purchase in 2009, and residents are encouraged to participate. Please EMAIL your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail to Northville Township Clerk, 44405 Six Mile Road, Northville, MI 48168. Submissions begin today and run through August 1st. Please include your name and address on your email entry. The winning entry will be announced August 10th.
- The Northville Township Fire Department partnered with Wayne County Health Department to administer Covid-19 tests at long term care facilities within the Township.
- The Township Hall is now open. Please remember to wear your masks. You will be greeted by our touchless temperature kiosk when you enter. We ask that you not enter Township Hall if you are experiencing a fever, cough or shortness of breath. The drive-thru is available on the west side of the building to limit in-person contact. Don’t forget to use our new 24/7 drop box located in the drive-thru lane for voter applications, ballots, payments or other documents.
We are making progress thanks to all of you!
Bob Nix, Supervisor
