Huron Township Police Department’s K9 unit conducted a proactive search of Huron High School on Wednesday.

The search was not in response to any particular incident or ongoing problem within the school, Public Safety Director Everette Robbins said.

Robbins said it was a random proactive search that was focused on the lockers in the school.

No students were searched or arrested, and no drugs were located in the school.

“A lot of credit should go to the superintendent and his entire staff for being proactive in making our schools safe. We will continue to work hand in hand with our school system and make sure our kids are safe,” Robbins said.

“I am very proud as not only the Chief, but also as a resident of our schools and the great people that work with our students. We certainly have some great young men and women in our schools, the future is bright.”

Terry Allore recently retired from the Huron Township Fire Department after a career that spanned 19 years as a firefighter and EMT.

The Department of Public Safety celebrated Allore’s retirement on Feb. 14.

“Firefighter Allore has been an outstanding employee and has served our residents and community well. I know he will miss his fellow brothers and sisters and they will miss him. The comradery within our fire department is incredible. I wish him a happy and healthy retirement,” said Public Safety Director Everette Robbins.

In attendance were current and past members of the fire department, public safety department, and his family.

During the retirement celebration, Allore was presented a shadow box and a plaque thanking him for his nearly two decades serving the residents of the township.

A speech was also given by honorary Firefighter Bobby Kamin. Kamin thanked Allore for being a great mentor.

Allore said he will miss his coworkers and thanked his family for being supportive of his difficult schedule as a firefighter.

“I will miss all of my fellow firefighters and police officers that I served with over the years and hope they go home safe every call and every shift. A big thanks to my wife and family for missing family parties, holidays, and events to go on calls and help people that needed me. I will also miss all of the fun times at township events. I thank the residents of Huron Township for letting me serve,” Allore said.

Clerk’s office responds to water bill issues some residents are experiencing

Published Feb. 19, 2019 — 2:15 p.m.

Here is a statement from the township clerk’s office regarding residents who are experiencing a water billing issue:

There have been several residents who have stated they did not receive their water bill yet. I have spoken to the Water Department (this office is not under my jurisdiction as the Clerk) regarding why the bills have not been delivered. They stated that they do generate the bills in house, then take the batch (depending on what part of the township is being billed at that time) to the New Boston post office. I went to the post office in New Boston today and spoke to the staff there. They indicated and verified by receipts that the Water Department did drop them off on February 8, 2019 to them. The process from there is that USPS sends them to the Detroit sorting facility and they just received them back TODAY to place on mail trucks. So the bills that are due 3-6-2019 should be hitting mailboxes any day now.

There were a few other residents who stated they got their bill in the mail the same day it was due. USPS advised us to look at the bill itself for barcode errors or double barcodes (this indicates there was an issue in sorting). We did notice this was the case on all the ones brought to the Water Departments attention. I believe the Water Department has made arrangements for these few affected residents.

If you have billing questions on water/sewer, please contact the Water Department at 734-753-4466 Ext: 123 or 124.
