Recycling
Posted on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 11:08 AM

This photo and video represents more and more the conditions we face at the recycling site Washington Township maintains for the Erie County Recycling Program. As you can see, multiple people are disregarding signs to not leave materials on the ground, not overfill the bins and to only leave true recyclables. The eventual answer will be either a costly monitored site or the removal all together. PLEASE tell others that if the practice continues, Washington Township will absolutley risk losing this important service.

Storm Siren Installed at Twp. Water Tower

Siren installation

Washington Township Council has purchased two used storm sirens in an effort to give warning to the area of impending danger. Rural Electric was kind enough to install two poles at no cost to the Township for mounting of the siren. The first installation is located behind the Walmart on Route 6N near the Township's water tower. The second site is yet to be determined and is scheduled for installation in the Spring, somewhere on the mid-eastern side of the Township. At this time we do not know just how much of the Township will be covered by the two sirens but the areas targeted are typically those that have experienced storm damage in the past. This is a great example of Council's commitment towards the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of out community. Once completely installed, the system will be activated by Erie County. Be alert for those warning tests and be prepared for an emergency situation when the sirens are warning of impending danger.

Eventually, Every Township Gets the Flu
Posted on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 at 10:10 AM

Years of active involvement in local government has shown that even the healthiest of municipalities can come down with an affliction. Now we’re not talking about an illness that requires a trip to the emergency room or even a visit to the local doctor’s office. This type of ailment requires a vastly different type of disease control than the medical profession can handle. Hopefully, none of these viruses will turn into a pandemic and cause mass hysteria, but you may be flabbergasted at the sometimes medieval response that outsiders may take towards those that display the symptoms. Don’t be surprised if a crowd of people gather outside the Township building with torches and pitchforks, demanding that someone be put through a myriad of gruesome tests to determine if they are a witch or sorcerer.
