Canton Township Supervisor Pat Williams along with Canton Township Director Tim Faas were our  guest speakers today and we focused on the upcoming millage vote for Canton Township.  This is an Important topic coming up for elections in 2018 for everyone driving on Canton's roads.  Pat first illustrated the Millage proposal history with input of over 7 months and 18 public meetings.  He then discussed some of the studies done by Spalding DeDecker and clearly the Millage is recommended and needed by the Township for the health of the roads.  Check this out in more detail at the Canton Township's website and the Canton Focus.
