Meridian Police Utilize New Tactic to Catch Distracted Drivers

Meridian Township Police officers are utilizing a new tactic to identify distracted drivers. Officers patrolling in unmarked cars and wearing civilian clothing are spotting distracted drivers. Uniformed officers in marked police cars will then stop distracted drivers to take enforcement action.

Distracted driving is an increasing cause of motor vehicle crashes in the United States. Enforcement of the law is difficult for officers, because violations occur quickly and at times in heavy traffic areas. This approach is being taken to encourage drivers to think twice before reading or sending text messages because an officer may be in the car next to them. See more.

Town Hall Meetings to Address Road Millage Request

Williamstown Township will host two town hall meetings to address questions regarding the millage request on the November ballot for maintenance of Township secondary roads. Attend on Wednesday, September 24th or October 15th at the Township Office. The meetings will take place from 6 to 7 pm.

The Ballot Language is as follows:

"This proposal will allow the General Law Township of Williamstown to levy millage for Secondary Road Preservation, Reconstruction and Maintenance. Shall the limitation on the amount of ad valorem taxes which may be levied by the Township of Williamstown, Ingham County, Michigan, against taxable property in the Township be increased by up to 1.5 mill ($1.50 per $1,000 of taxable value) for a period of ten (10) years, 2014 through 2023, inclusive, for the purpose of providing funds for secondary road preservation, reconstruction and maintenance, and shall the Township levy such millage for these purposes? If approved and levied in its entirety, the estimated revenue that the Township would collect from this 1.5 mill is $328,342 in 2014." See printable version.

Road Construction Update

Road construction began on Shoeman Road from Haslett Road north to the Township line on Monday, August 25, 2014. Shoeman Road will be open to local traffic with the exception of a complete closure of the intersection of Shoeman and Barry Roads with an anticipated closing date of September 2, 2014. At this time, please be prepared to take an alternative route. The full closure will shorten the project construction time to lessen the inconvenience for all and especially for the residents of Shoeman Road. A complete set of the construction plans are available for viewing at the Township Hall. The anticipated end date for the project is mid-November.  Please drive with caution and avoid the area if possible.
