Our friends at the Water and Sewer Department asked us to help spread the word! Dear Redford Township Residents RE: South Redford Low Water Pressure On February 22, 2018, the Redford Township Water Department started work on a new 30” valve on our connection to Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) at the northwest corner of Beech Daly and Schoolcraft Roads. This capital improvement project will take approximately 60 days to complete and will limit the flow of water from north to south within the township during repairs. Normally, a standard repair like this would only cause a slight decrease in pressure. Unfortunately for our community, the 48” GLWA water main line that broke in the City of Livonia, west of Inkster Road along Schoolcraft Road last month has caused additional issues for our water pressure. This 48” line normally supplies Livonia, Westland and other communities with much of their water supply. Our connection to GLWA at West Chicago Road normally could handle all of the needed demand without problem, but currently that line is also handling higher demand from other communities as well due to the water main break last month. These events have caused the drop in pressure that you are currently experiencing, particularly in the morning and evening hours. We truly apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our residents and assure you we are doing everything in our power to expedite the Beech Daly & Schoolcraft repair. If there are any changes to the project schedule, we will keep you informed. Thank you for your patience. Redford Township Water & Sewer Department

"My trash was not picked up, who do I complain too?" This was photo sent to us by the Route Supervisor for the trash company. We have dispatched a car to try and correct the problem. So everyone is aware the company is going above and beyond and stated that if they can not pick it up today due to these problems, they will try and return to that area tomorrow. This delays the process and creates extra work for the company, and frustrates the residents. Please use courtesy AND common sense while the roads are still snow covered.

Please welcome our newest police officer, Ashley Bankstahl. Officer Bankstahl recently graduated from the Kalamazoo police academy. Welcome Officer Bankstahl!
