Dear Meridian Township Residents,
According to the Lansing Board of Water and Light and Consumers Energy we have around 700-900 customers without power. We continue to hope that everyone is restored by Sunday night. Monday morning the township will assess neighborhood by neighborhood to make sure everyone has power.
We certainly realize how traumatic this ice storm has been and we will quickly move into the next phase of brush and limb clean up.
We are working on the details this weekend but rest assured the Meridian Township Board is establishing a program that will assist property owners with brush removal. For now please stack your brush by the street and we will remove the brush over the next few weeks. With the volume of brush around the community we expect the clean up to take 5-6 weeks.
We will continue to do what it takes to join hands and get through this crisis.
The Haslett High School Warming Center remains in operation. Last night we had 19 citizens spend the night at the center. We appreciate the many members of our business community who have stepped up to provide food at the high school.
We will continue to provide daily updates until the last light is on and the brush is removed.
Thank you for your continued patience.
Meridian Township Manager
