Attention local photographers and residents.

The township’s website will undergo a redesign soon, and officials at Township Hall are looking for photos that can be used once it’s finished.

The Huron Township Board of Trustees approved funding during their Feb. 13 meeting to redesign the website.

The custom-designed website will feature search engine optimization, social media integration and annual maintenance.

Email your photos to the clerk’s office at jcady@hurontownship-mi.gov.

Those who submit photos will receive proper credit on the website if they are used.

After being delayed Tuesday, trash pickup on dirt roads in Huron Township is once again delayed due to the icy road conditions.

Pickup on Tuesday was delayed after two Waste Management trucks had trouble navigating the back roads due to ice.

Temperatures are forecasted to rise into the low 40s on Thursday, which hopefully will melt some of the ice and make the township’s dirt roads more passable.
