Fall Is Here

 

 

We’re savoring the last days of summer, but fall is just around the corner. This should alert everyone to prepare for schools being back in session and that also means sharing the road with school buses.  The big yellow school bus does mandate that all drivers pay attention and follow rules implemented for the safety of all children. Michigan law requires drivers to stop and wait for a stopped school bus either loading or unloading. School buses have a long history of being a part of the morning and afternoon landscape for generations. When the yellow lights come on all motorists should slow down and be prepared to stop. After the bus displays the red flashing lights and the stop arm goes out, a driver of a vehicle must stop (from either direction) and wait until the red lights are turned off. The act of illegally passing a school bus with red lights flashing is a violation of the Michigan motor vehicle traffic law. Drivers need to be aware of children walking to or walking away from the bus stop. It is equally important to know where bus stops are located and be prepared for children to be grouped there.

  

If you have a question regarding the location of bus stops, bus routes or any other school related issues, please contact your local school administration office. We hope you had an enjoyable summer and ask that everyone be alert for school children and school busses.

 

During this season of change enjoy the fall activities like hiking or biking through the forests of turning leaves, sip a glass of warm apple cider by a cozy fire or take a tour of the orchards and vineyards here in the Great South West.


 

 

 

Identification Stickers

 

Children’s identification stickers are an easy to fill out label that assists first responders during a traffic crash. The sticker is completed by a parent or guardian and then it is affixed (self-sticking) to the car seat. This has been a fast and easy way to provide crucial details if the child is injured and no persons at the scene are able to provide information. The sticker has a flap that offers privacy and protects the information from deterioration. Stickers are available, for free, at the Royalton Township Hall during regular business hours.

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.
