  4. did you know?

Hello Neighbors, 

I was sad to see the loss of our Cady-Boyer barn to a fire over Memorial Day weekend. Many of you have asked about the plan for replacing it. We are currently working with the insurance company for removal of debris. Once that is completed, we will begin developing plans for the future.

As our facilities continue the reopening process, I wanted everyone to know that Canton Township is still looking for part-time workers in many positions. Jobs are open for both seasonal and year-round employment. You can check our website for details: https://canton.applicantpro.com/jobs/ 

We are continuing to work with GFL on trash, recycling and compost pickup. They are experiencing resource issues and have stated they will continue to work overtime to pick up compost by the end of each week. I have had a chance to speak with many residents regarding our refuse collection, and I appreciate your information and feedback. We are in constant contact with GFL, and publish updates publicly through our website and Municipal Services Facebook page. You can find updates at www.canton-mi.org, and www.facebook.com/cantonmsd/     

As Independence Day approaches, it is good to not only know the rules and ordinances related to fireworks in our community, but also to brush up on fireworks safety in general. Please reference the article on the front page of this newsletter developed by our Public Safety department. I encourage you to please read it thoroughly, it will answer many questions you may have.

Please have a happy and safe fourth of July.
