New office hours

CLAYTON TOWNSHIP – Clayton Township residents take note: the township offices have new hours effective immediately. The office, 2011 Morrish Road, is now open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fridays. Previously, office hours were more varied with staff staying until 7 p.m. on Wednesdays. However, township officials said they found that when the offices opened at 8 a.m., they were very busy with walk-in traffic, but few people stopped in after 5 p.m. – L.R.

Consumers to donate

SWARTZ CREEK – In October 2017, Consumers Energy launched its Energy Savers Club program exclusively for customers in the 48473 ZIP code. The power company invited customers to enroll in the club to learn more about saving energy. As an incentive, Consumers pledged to donate $15,000 to a community project, and asked club members to vote on where the money would go. The votes now have been tallied and the donation will help support the proposed non-motorized trail system that will link Swartz Creek’s trails to the Genesee Valley Trail and eventually the Iron Belle Trail. – L.R.
