Quote (modified by Township Treasurer) from Michigan Township News:
All elected township officials and board members need to have a "customer service" and COMMMUNICATION mentality.
Our "customers" are voters, residents, taxpayers and they should be treated with dignity and respect.
Evergreen Cemetery
There have been several inquiries regarding location of grave sites at the cemetery. At this time the Township does not have a map or program available. It is a project that is hopefully going to be worked on soon. In the meantime, there is a website that has proven to be helpful to some in their research as it does list Evergreen.
