Summer Safety Reminders


Summer means it’s time for school to be over for the year and children being outdoors. With the activities of the summer season it is important to keep several basic safety practices in mind. Much effort has been put forth to inform of the importance to protect our skin from the potential damaging rays of the sun. Remember to use sun screen, sun block or whatever you choose. Other reminders are:


  • When taking road trips make sure everyone is wearing seat belts.
  • Make sure infants and toddlers are in appropriate car seats.
  • Be aware of the dangers of heatstroke and keep hydrated.
  • Never leave children or pets alone in a parked vehicle.
  • Parents – make sure you know where your children are.
  • Children – tell your parents where you are going & never trust strangers.
  • Always be careful at campfires, by lakes, pools and water activities.
  • When playing sports be sure to wear proactive gear.
  • Be careful while mowing the lawn or operating any equipment.
  • When riding a bike on the road ride in the direction of traffic.
  • When walking on a road always face oncoming traffic.
  • Use a repellant while outdoors to defend against bug bites.


Have a great summer

Enjoy your favorite summer event

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.
