Entrance Applications and Culvert Installation

Residents wishing to create an entrance off a Township Road will require an entrance permit. Download the Township application form or County application form. The proposed location should be staked out prior to the Road Superintendent's visit. The Road Superintendent will determine if a culvert or gravel is necessary to complete the work. All work is done by the Public Works Department. After approval is given the application will be forwarded to the main office for payment.

9-1-1 Civic Addressing

Signs can be ordered by the Township office at a cost of $ 64.50 including installation by the Public Works Department.

Street Lights

The Township depends on information from the public to advise of streetlights not operating. Please call the Municipal Office, not Hydro One, about a streetlight being out and provide the street address and the pole number.
