SIDEWALK REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT
The plan for 2015 for the sidewalks as approved by the Board of Trustees is:
(1) At the end of May, critical sections of sidewalks will start to be replaced in the Ravenswood subdivision by the concrete contractor. (Not all marked squares will be replaced during this time.)
(2) In June, the American Grinding Company will grind and survey sidewalks in the Edgemont subdivision. Sidewalks with trip hazards between 1/4 inch and 1-1/2 inch will be ground to meet the change of gradient and slip-resistance standards for pedestrian surfaces as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Sidewalks that are significantly cracked, over 1-1/2 inch raised or over 50% spalled will be identified for replacement.
(3) At the end of June and in July after the grinding is completed and the walks that need replacing are identified by the American Grinding Company, the concrete company will go into Edgemont and complete the replacement work.
(4) If the Township determines that the grinding of the sidewalks is an important process in the repair of our sidewalks, they will continue into the Ravenswood subdivision with the grinding and surveying for this subdivision. Time permitting, the concrete company will go back into Ravenswood and complete the identified squares to replace those that were not able to be ground.

Election Inspectors Needed
Are you detail oriented, with enough stamina to work
A 15 hour day?
Election Inspectors are a vital part of the election process. The Township will employ approximately 50 Inspectors to run the August and November elections. If you like to get up early, enjoy working with people, are comfortable using a laptop and are willing to attend a 3 hour training class, you might be just the person I am looking for. Please contact my office for an application or go to www.lansingtownship.org and print an application and return it to the Clerk’s Office. Election Inspectors currently earn $10.00 per hour.
Thank you for considering this opportunity.
