Sumter Township - Roadside Cutting Notices

Roadside Cutting Notices
Persons owning or occupying real estate adjoining a Sumter township road are required to cut all weeds and grass growing in the township road ditches adjacent to their property by October 5, 2015. Ditches need to be cut as to prevent snow from piling on township roads. This also refers to trees, rocks, brush and the like on road right-of-way. Do not place cut weeds and grass on the road surfaces as this causes problems when grading roads.
