Welcome to

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in this country’s armed forces. Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day and was initiated to honor the soldiers for the Union and Confederate armies who died during the American Civil War.

 

By the late 19th century, the holiday became known as Memorial Day and was expanded to include the deceased veterans of all the wars fought by the American Forces. Today Memorial Day traditions include making sure the U.S. flag is displayed, honoring our nation’s heroes by decorating graves of soldiers who died for their country, participating in Memorial Day parades, and other events that honor the million-plus fallen U.S. soldiers.

 

This year we observe Memorial Day on:

Monday, the 30th of May

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

May is National Building Safety Month

 

May has been proclaimed as National Building Safety Month in the United States, encouraging citizens, government agencies, businesses, non-profits and all other groups to join in activities that raise awareness about building safety. Buildings all across our country provide not only safety and shelter for everyone but offer places to gather and perform our daily activities. This is accomplished by establishing and enforcing nationally recognized building code standards. The Royalton Township Department of Building Safety asks all residents to learn more about how they can contribute to building safety at home and throughout our local community.

Beginning May 14, 2005, Royalton Township Board adopted an amendment to Ordinance Number 25, "Water Rate Ordinance", which addresses Water Conservation Regulations.  This amendment allows for lawn sprinkling using municipal (city) water on days that coincide with your address.  Properties with 'even' number ending addresses (example - 1436) may use water from the public water system for the purpose of sprinkling only on 'even' numbered calendar days, and residents whose address ends in 'odd' numbers (example - 295) may use water from the public water system for the purpose of sprinkling only on 'odd' numbered calendar days.  Properties without an assigned address are considered 'odd' numbered for the purpose of this ordinance.

Exemptions for this rule are for newly planted grass, trees, and other plants for the first 30 days following planting.  Further, sprinkling of vegetable gardens is exempt from this section of the ordinance.  Also, 'sprinkling' shall not include drip irrigation systems, the use of a container such as a watering can or pitcher, or the use of hose equipment with a spring-loaded shutoff device that automatically stops the flow of water if the hose is left unattended.
