|Voluntary Outdoor Water Use Restriction Program
June 20, 2012
Several months ago Canton Township contacted you regarding our voluntary water use restriction program. The program asks that you irrigate common areas and landscaping between the hours of 12:00mid-night and 6:00am and observe an odd/even watering schedule. Irrigating during these times will help control future water rate increases.
Canton Township receives our water from the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) which computes the rates based upon three factors. The first two factors are the distance and elevation that DWSD needs to pump water to the Township. These two factors do not change each year for Canton. The third factor is water use during peak times, which is the ONLY factor that we can control. We are not requesting anyone to irrigate less, but only to irrigate at a different time. There are no risks posed to your turf grass & plants by irrigating during these early hours of the day. By irrigating at these times, we can potentially affect one of the factors that DWSD uses in calculating our future water rates.
It is likely that this water restriction program could be mandatory in upcoming years, so we are requesting community water customers to help change our water use patterns this year. Your cooperation and help would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns about this program, please feel free to contact us at (734)397-1011 or view our Frequently Asked Questions at the following:
|Tree Scales / Disease
June 22, 2010
Canton has been made aware that several homeowners have trees that have a scale type parasite on them. We have investigated the problem and according to experts at Michigan State University Calico Scale, Cottony Maple Scale, and Lecanium Scale are infesting Honey Locust and other trees. Aphids are also feeding off the honeydew produced by the scales. Trees that are repeatedly attacked by these pests are sometimes weakened leaving them susceptible to other diseases and pests.
Please find attached information that will help explain the disease. It is recommended, if you have trees that are infected, you contact a tree service for assistance.
|Canton Urges Residents to Report Stolen Catch Basin Covers
June 21, 2010, Canton, MI - Canton's Public Works Division is asking residents to be on the look out for any suspicious activities around the storm drains in subdivision streets. Over the past month, Public Works has had over a dozen reports of missing grates on street inlets. Missing grates pose a danger to anyone who hits one in their car, on a bike, or steps into one.
To report a missing grate along a public road please call Wayne County at 888/ROADCREW. To report a missing grate in a private development, with private roads call Canton Public Works at 397-1011. The cost for Canton to replace each cover is $125.
|Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP)
4/09 -Canton Township is in the process of receiving $2,182,988 in grant money to participate in the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP).
The funds will be used to:
Buy foreclosed or abandoned homes for resale to low/moderate income families
Make any needed repairs to homes acquired
Offer down payment and closing cost assistance to low/moderate income buyers of homes acquired under the program.
The funds must be distributed to geographic "areas of greatest need" in the community. The areas are determined by the following criteria:
Greatest percentage of home foreclosures
Highest percentage of homes financed by subprime mortgage loan
Identified as likely to face a significant rise in the rate of home foreclosures
The projected start date for the NSP is April 1, 2009. The funds must be obligated for a specific project within 18 months of receipt of the award agreement from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and all funds must be spent within four years of agreement receipt.
Canton must ensure that homebuyers undergo at least eight hours of homebuyer counseling and do not use a subprime mortgage in the purchase. The NSP is authorized by the Title III of Division B of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, 2009 (HERA).
