Summer Safety Reminders

 

 

 

Summer means it is time for school to be out of session for the summer and children being outdoors. With the activities of the summer season it is important to keep several basic safety practices in mind. Much effort has been put forth to inform of the importance to protect our skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Remember to use sun block, sun screen or whatever you choose. Other items to remember are:

 

  1. When taking road trips make sure everyone is wearing seat belts.

  2. Make sure infant and toddlers are in appropriate car seats.

  3. Parents – make sure you know where your children are.

  4. Kids – tell your parents where you are going and never trust strangers.

  5. Be extra careful at camp fires, around pools, lakes and water activities.

  6. Wear protective gear like helmets, pads and gloves while playing sports.

  7. Be careful while mowing the lawn. Injuries are common in the summer.

  8. Ride a bike with traffic.

  9. When walking on a road always face oncoming traffic.

  10. Use something while outside in the evening to defend against bug bites.

 

Have a great summer, enjoy your favorite event and be safe.

Royalton Township Lift Stations are equipped with a warning light to acknowledge a possible equipment malfunction.  If the red light on a sewer lift station is on, please call the Township immediately at 429-2501, or call Chris Laski, Maintenance Department on cell phone number 876-6152, or 369-3804, or 876-6149.  Thank you!

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.
