BW&L Tree Trimming Program
The BWL has crews working in the Groesbeck neighborhood, north of Hopkins Ave. Work in this area is expected to be completed near the end of April.
Customers will receive a notice on their door if their trees will be trimmed or removed. A pink card will indicate the trees will be trimmed and yellow indicates removal. The trees will also be marked with a dot or “X” if they’re to be trimmed or cut down respectively. Trees planned for removal may also be initially marked by tying on a red ribbon.
In response to the December ice storm outage, the BWL has identified 54 actions to improve communications and reduce future restoration times, including adhering to a 5 year vegetation management program. Crews will be following pruning standards approved by the American National Standards Institute for Tree Care Operations.
If you have questions regarding tree trimming work, call 517-702-6552.
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.
