NEWS BRIEFS

KC RAFFLE WINNERS – The winners of the Chesaning Knights of Columbus 50/50 raffle for August are Chris Tanner, of Birch Run, the John Emmendorfer Estate, of Chesaning, Dale Drexler, of Chesaning, and Bob Erdman, of New Lothrop.

ACCIDENTS ON SHARON ROAD – During the Aug. 2 meeting of the Chesaning Township Board, Supervisor Bob Corrin said there have been three accidents on Sharon Road near Wildwood cemetery recently. He said motorists have been driving too fast around the curve. He asked commissioner Kyle Harris to have the sheriff’s department contact him about it. The sheriff’s department did call and promised additional patrolling in the area.

NEW HOMES – Chesaning Township Supervisor Bob Corrin told the township board that he looked over the permits and there’s the possibility of eight new home starts before the

end of the year. “So things are improving,” Corrin said. He also commented that building administrator Rob Kehoe is recovering from an injury.

CEMETERY RULES – Chesaning Township Trustee Bill Hedrich said he’s been getting calls about items being removed from gravesites at Wildwood Cemetery. “Rules are rules,” he said. Supervisor Bob Corrin briefly commented about the grounds maintenance problems caused by prohibited items left in the cemetery. One of the key challenges township officials deal with is people not understanding that the adjacent Catholic cemetery has different rules than the township for gravesite décor.

TOWNSHIP SUPPORTS 911 – During the Aug. 2 meeting of the Chesaning Township Board, Supervisor Bob Corrin addressed the

911 millage proposal during the fire board report. “If our voters don’t approve it, we’ll get charged for it,” Corrin said. Trustee Kevin Carlton, who is also the assistant fire chief for the Chesaning-Brady Fire Department, said the new radios are $6,000 apiece. Carlton stressed the importance of good communication, especially in emergency situations. Corrin repeated, “If (if the 911 millage) doesn’t pass, we’ll get assessed for it.”

SUMMER TAXES – Chesaning Township Treasurer Cathy Gross reminds local tax payers that they have until Sept. 14 to pay their summer taxes to avoid incurring interest. Those who need to file for deferments have until Sept. 14 as well.
