As you can guess , I do receive a fair amount of correspondence from constituents. I try to acknowledge all emails and letters promptly because your input is important .Many of these notes ask questions which may be of interest to many of you – and my response may also be of interest.
So , I will publish some of these questions along with my answer. I will identify the letter writers by initials only and reserve the right to edit all material before publishing. Naturally, these examples will represent only a small segment of the mail I regularly receive.
I trust you will find this section of my website of interest and would remind you to direct all e-mail correspondence to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mar 19, 2017 Hello Maurice I am looking to get a status and updates on the building/completion of this park. Being a Musselmans lake residence with children we are excited to have this in our community. We’re hoping it will be complete for use this summer. If you could share it point me in the […]

Maurice I have noted that an Amendment to the Gravel Pit Rehab program has recently passed very quickly.

Dear Mr. Smith, Is it possible for the township to spray for the tent caterpillars on the Aurora Road, east of Highway 48. There is a myriad of them in the trees and I have noticed that one tree east of Highway 48 is now infested with them. I would hate to see them […]
