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. Please check back to our Highway page often to see the
progress. 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.
