Sterling Township Highway Department Newsletter Article for spring, 2016 Even   though   we   had   very   little   snow   this   past   winter   our   roads   still   took   a   toll.      We   will   be doing   a   lot   of   crack   sealing   on   our   streets   this   year.      Please   be   aware   of   the   workers   and flaggers and help keep everyone safe. Yard waste schedule has been changed.   We   will   be   picking   up   yard   waste   only   one   (1)   day   each   week   and   that   day   is   Monday.      You must   have   your   yard   waste   out   by   6:00   a.m.   for   pick   up.      Small   sticks,   branches   and   leaves must   be   put   in   yard   waste   bags   or   in   containers   marked   with   an   “X”.      Containers   heavier than   40   pounds   will   not   be   picked   up.      If   a   homeowner   decides   to   trim   a   few   branches   from their   trees,   they   must   be   cut   up   into   4’   to   5’   lengths.      We   will   only   pick   up   larger   piles   of branches   due   to   storm   damage.      Example,   if   the   home   owner   decides   to   take   down   a   tree by   themselves   or   hire   it   done,   it   is   the   responsibility   of   the   homeowner   to   dispose   of   the debris.      There   will   be   no   burning   allowed   on   the   township   right   of   way   including   the   ditches.     We   ask   for   your   cooperation   in   not   blowing   grass   clippings   onto   our   roads   and   highways.     Wet   grass   becomes   very   slippery   and   also   a   safety   hazard   for   pedestrians,   bicyclists   and motorcyclists. Right   now   we   are   assessing   our   roads   to   see   where   the   major   problems   are   so   that   these can    be    repaired.        Other    work    along    our    highways    will    include    blacktop    patching,    curb replacement, shoulder widening, guard rail replacement, mowing and weed spraying. This   is   just   a   reminder   to   please   pay   attention   to   all   signs   pertaining   to   construction   work along our roads.  Also, slow down in work zone areas and please stay off your cell phone. Our   summer   hours   will   be   from   6:00   a.m.   to   4:00   p.m.   Monday   thru   Thursday.      If   you   have any   questions   or   concerns   please   call   our   office   during   those   hours   at   (815)   625-2785.      If   we don’t   answer   we   are   working   on   the   roads   so   please   leave   a   message   and   we’ll   get   back   to you as soon as we can. Thank you. Sterling Township Highway Department Highway Commissioner, Dana Stutzke
