Ice Storm in Meridian Township Update #5

Haslett High School Warming Center
5450 Marsh Rd, Haslett, MI 48840

Dear Meridian Township Residents,

Needless to say this past week has been quite a challenge for a great number of our residents and our township team members who have worked around-the-clock to protect us. I want to personally thank our exemplary fire, police and public works staff who have served beyond the call of duty.

I just spoke with Consumers Energy staff and the number of Meridian Township residents without power is now approximately 1,000. Just three days ago we had 15,000 to 18,000 residents without power. I realize what a challenge this has been, and continues to be, for many of you. Please know the Meridian Township Board and staff are committed to staying on top of the outage until all the lights are on.

I’d be remiss if I did not publicly thank the thousands of line workers from Michigan and throughout the Midwest who have left their families at Christmas to help us.

The warming center at Haslett HS remains open. We have cots, water, food and plenty of goodwill. Please do not hesitate to join us.

Thank you for your patience.
Frank Walsh
Meridian Township Manager
