Petition. The Trustees have received a petition to not close Valley Road south of Moreland Road. This section has several homes and is through private property. It will not be closed. This has been a rumor that has been around for a long time.
Complaint. The Trustees received a complaint That chip and seal was used in the Johnny Appleseed development instead of pavement. If we would have paved all the roads in the Johnny Appleseed development it would have taken all the road maintenance budget and no other roads in the Township would have been maintained.
Complaint. People couldn't attend the Township meeting because they are held in the evening and the work second shift. The meeting schedule is set to allow the Trustees and Fiscal Officer can attend. if you have a question or complaint you can send it to the Trustees by text, email or call. If you would like it put on the agenda contact the Fiscal Officer.
Fall is quickly approaching. Leaves will be falling. Do Not put leaves or yard waste into the ditch. This continues to be a problem washing away the the ditch sides and possibly the edge of the roadway.
Township Road Maintenance Franklin Township will be cleaning berms on most of the Township roads. Over time berms can build up and have to be cut back. Water needs to run off the pavement into the ditch.
