Morse Avenue Sidewalk

What were, until now, hazardous open culverts which forced students to walk along a busy Township Road, will soon be a pedestrian friendly, safe and level sidewalk where they can find their way home without hazard. 

Commissioner Muehlfelt and the Milton Township Board are pleased to work together to make our Township Streets safer for all our citizens, especially our younger ones.
