FAT TUESDAY

 

 

 

What is Fat Tuesday?

 

For most Catholics, Fat Tuesday is a celebration or time to observe the day before Ash Wednesday, as it represents the day that Jesus was sentenced to death. From Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday, people of Catholic faith make a sacrifice to stop eating something they really enjoy. This time frame is known as Lent.  In order to eat the selected sacrificial item one last time, Fat Tuesday has become known as the day when everyone (regardless of religion) allows themselves to eat the items they consider to be a tasty treat before the start of Lent. Fat Tuesday is also known as Paczki Day, when bakers sell special sweet doughnuts. So go ahead, eat your favorite food and for one day you get a free pass card.

 

Mardi Gras is also another similar celebration that is held during this same time, and is extremely popular in New Orleans.

Royalton Township Lift Stations are equipped with a warning light to acknowledge a possible equipment malfunction.  If the red light on a sewer lift station is on, please call the Township immediately at 429-2501, or call Chris Laski, Maintenance Department on cell phone number 876-6152, or 369-3804, or 876-6149.  Thank you!

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.
