Watch Cedar Creek Grow
May 16, 2019
The journey to the position of Township Supervisor was an unexpected one; however, now that I am in the position, I absolutely love serving the families of Cedar Creek.
Each week, I will attempt to write a bit about something significant that has happened or that will be happening in the very near future.
- Our Annual Muskegon County Tire Drive - was held here at Cedar Creek Township Hall on Saturday May 18 from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm at 6556 Sweeter Road, Twin Lake, MI 49457. We collected approximately 3,000 tires. This means that people in our township and throughout the county were able to get old tires out of their garages and back yards and, yes, off the streets of our local communities. Thank you to all who volunteered to help out with this great recycling event!
- August 6, 2019 - we were able to get off our old hosting site and start our new website. It may take a bit to figure things out, but you should be able to go to our calendar of events to find out what is going on within Cedar Creek Township. We will do our best to keep you updated.
- September 16, 2019 - Recycling in Cedar Creek is getting closer to becoming a reality. We applied for and were awarded a grant through EGLE, Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy – State of Michigan, to begin working on this project. Once the infrastructure work to accommodate recycling at the Transfer Station is completed, we will be able to accept recyclable items at our Cedar Creek Township Transfer Station on Saturdays during regular service hours (8:30 am - 3:00 pm.)
In the meantime, anyone wishing to recycle their metal refuse/recycling may do so at the Transfer Station without charge. This means we can accept all the clean tin cans that you have been storing up as well as old bikes, grills and other scrap metal. This is a great way to clean up your garage and your yard. Please note that there is a charge for bringing all other trash to the Transfer Station.
Recycling is important to our residents – we are excited to bring it to Cedar Creek. We will keep you posted as this project progresses.
- October 21, 2019 - October is Fire Prevention Month -- Did you know that Cedar Creek Township is served by three Fire Departments? According to the “Close Your Door Campaign,” forty years ago you used to have approximately 17 minutes in which to escape your burning house - now you have approximately 3 minutes. This is due to the amount of synthetic materials that are placed in homes today. Your primary job is to escape and call 911 at which point they will direct the appropriate Fire Department to you.
Why am I bringing this up? Our three Fire Departments, as well as the rest of the Muskegon County Fire Departments, are participating in the Operation Save A Life Installation Program, which provides fire detectors to area homeowners. Your home should have a fire detector in every bedroom and on every floor. This is for homeowners only (it is not available to renters.)
If you know the Fire Department that serves your area, please call the number listed below and arrange for them to install your new fire detectors. There is no charge for this service – it is a proactive fire prevention measure. If you do not know who covers your area, please feel free to call or email me, Linda M. Aerts at 231-821-0014 (M-W) or firstname.lastname@example.org. They are busy so please do what you can to work within their schedules.
