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.

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.
