Fall Is Here

 

We are all savoring the last days of summer, but fall is just around the corner. This should alert everyone to prepare for schools being back in session, and that also means sharing the road with school busses. The big yellow school bus does mandate that all drivers pay attention and follow rules implemented for the safety of all children. Michigan law requires drivers to stop and wait for a stopped school bus either loading or unloading. School busses have a long history of being a part of the morning and afternoon landscape. When the yellow lights come on all motorists should slow down and be prepared to stop. After the buss displays the red flashing lights and the stop arm goes out, a driver of a vehicle must stop (from either direction) and wait until the red lights are turned off. The act of illegally passing a school bus with red lights flashing is a violation of the Michigan motor vehicle traffic law. Drivers need to be aware of children walking to or walking away from the bus stop. It is equally important to know where bus stops are located and be prepared for children to be grouped there.

 

If you have a question regarding the location of bus stops, bus routes or any other school related issues, please contact your local school administration office.

 

During this season of change take time to enjoy the fall activities like walking through the forests of turning leaves, sip a glass of warm apple cider by a cozy fire or take a tour of the orchards and vineyards here in the Great Southwest.

Beginning May 14, 2005, Royalton Township Board adopted an amendment to Ordinance Number 25, "Water Rate Ordinance", which addresses Water Conservation Regulations.  This amendment allows for lawn sprinkling using municipal (city) water on days that coincide with your address.  Properties with 'even' number ending addresses (example - 1436) may use water from the public water system for the purpose of sprinkling only on 'even' numbered calendar days, and residents whose address ends in 'odd' numbers (example - 295) may use water from the public water system for the purpose of sprinkling only on 'odd' numbered calendar days.  Properties without an assigned address are considered 'odd' numbered for the purpose of this ordinance.

Exemptions for this rule are for newly planted grass, trees, and other plants for the first 30 days following planting.  Further, sprinkling of vegetable gardens is exempt from this section of the ordinance.  Also, 'sprinkling' shall not include drip irrigation systems, the use of a container such as a watering can or pitcher, or the use of hose equipment with a spring-loaded shutoff device that automatically stops the flow of water if the hose is left unattended.
