For several years the township has been cautiously progressing with the development of non-motorized trails. We’ve purchased or acquired easements for most of the miles of roadway we need to cross the township near the old Grand Trunk Railroad bed. So far we have constructed about two miles of trail, with the first being from 144th Ave. to 130th Ave. and the current trail being installed under the new bypass on ramp at 120th Ave. Almost all of the funds for these projects have been secured from MDOT, MNRTF or MPO grants.
Currently, MDOT will pay 70% of the cost of the 2.75-mile extension, or about $1.3 million, if the Township can come up with about $574,000. We have a $45,000 grant from MNRTF approved through the Legislature. Individual contributions and local grants are getting more difficult to obtain.
With these things in hand, the township board decided to pose the question to our citizens regarding raising the monies needed to secure these grants and keep the trail development moving forward. With half a mil, two years of collection of revenues would provide the added dollars for the match to the MDOT grant. It would also provide funding for minimal maintenance, including mowing, snow plowing and some cleanup. Without local support, it will be several years before construction might be realized. The millage question will be on the November ballot.
Margaret Scott, Crockery Township Historian, received a surprise visit from local members of VFW and American Legion posts who presented her with a Certificate of Appreciation for her help with the Sgt. Henry E. Plant Memorial Grand River Bridge Non-Motorized Pathway dedication.

Don’t pour that grease down the sink!!
Next time you’re about to pour that extra cooking grease down the drain, you might want to think first: In the sewers below, the grease transforms into hardened deposits of soaplike chemicals that can cause serious headaches for sewer maintenance workers and can pose environmental and health hazards by causing sewer overflows.
Overflowing sewers can cause environmental and public health problems and lead to costly repairs.
Residence of Cobblestone and Hathaway Lakes are currently dealing with this situation.
