Spring Newsletter!

With Spring fast approaching and the warm weather here to stay, the Spring newsletter is here for your reading pleasure! Please pay special attention to the Right column on the front and the Left column on the back. Consider cutting this out and hanging it on the fridge as it has a lot of helpful numbers and information that you may need throughout the year!
Also, get involved and sign up for alerts about road projects or emergencies happening in the Township by e-mailing winfieldinfo@zoominternet.net.

Road Clean Up Date

Every year, Winfield Township conducts a road clean up day. This provides the residents the chance to clean any trash that may have accumulated alongside the road over the past year. This year’s road clean up will be held on April 26, 2014, with a rain date of May 3, 2014. The week of the clean up, there will be gloves, vests, and bags available for pick up at the Township Building.
Help keep our Township Beautiful and contact the Township Office to let us know what road(s) you plan to help pick up!

Roads, Roads, Roads!

This winter has been particularly harsh on our roads. As all of you have probably already noticed, there are potholes appearing overnight and our Road Crew is working everyday that the weather permits to patch the potholes. Got a large pothole? Visit the CONTACT US section of our page and let us know.
We are also working to revamp our Road Maintenance program to better suit the current condition of the roads. This will aid in better budgeting for the future.

We also plan to ditch many of the roads to better usher the water off the sides of the road while staying within the Right-of-Way (this will hopefully decrease the ‘spider web cracks that you see along side the road).
Please understand that we are working very hard to better serve you, the residents of Winfield Township, and provide you with the best roads possible.

Please sign up for e-mail alerts at winfieldinfo@zoominternet.net. We will only send out alerts that could potentially affect your daily life; road closures, road projects, or emergencies within the Township. STAY INVOLVED, STAY CONNECTED!

Think Spring,

Adam
