Snowbirds

Many snowbirds will be heading South before long. Some practical tips for you to consider are: have our Police check your house on a regular basis, stop delivery to your mail and paper boxes, contract with someone to clear your driveway and walkway to the house. Stop in at the Township Office to fill out a Property Check for our policeman.
