The township does not plow until we receive 4 inches of snow. We try to begin plowing as soon as the snowfall ends. If forecasts indicate a very heavy accumulation we may start during the storm and make more than one pass through the township. It takes approximately 12 hours to plow the entire township one time. Be patient, we will be working as fast as we can. If your street has not been plowed 24 hours after the snowfall ends call the Department of Public Works (DPW) office.

When plowing snow we attempt to get as close to the curb as we can, so it is not unusual to have some damaged mailboxes. If we break it we will fix it. If your mailbox was broken by us, please fill out the Mailbox/Yard Damage Report or call our Public Works Division at 810-424-2600 Ext. 2903. The day after we complete the snow removal we will begin making repairs. In some cases we may have to make a temporary repair, which will allow you to receive your mail, and come back and complete the repair in the spring. If your mail box is repairable the Township will repair it but if the mail box is beyond repair it will be replaced with a standard mail box and a standard pole.
Call the township office and report the damage. We will send someone out to investigate the complaint. We will repair the damage but it will probably be spring before we are able to make any serious repairs.
