Street Cleaning Underway – 1st Ward

Please keep the curb sides clear of vehicles. After the long and fierce winter of 2014-15 our Public Works Department is hard at work cleaning the remains of our roadway treatments. As the township street sweaping truck makes it’s way through the township, we ask that residents make every effort to keep the curb sides clear of vehicles so that our crews can do a through job.
