Over the next month we will be replacing the sidewalk on Water Street in Portland, from St. Mary's Street to Main Street.  The existing sidewalk will be removed and replaced with a new concrete sidewalk.  This is part of our sidewalk rehabilitation program.


W.J.Sherwood & Sons Construction Co. will be onsite to complete this project.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but look forward to a new and improved sidewalk.


If you have any questions during the construction, please contact the Township Office at 1-800-928-2250 Ext 230.  Please avoid this area during construction when possible.


Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.

bb Culvert Screens

The Roads Department asks that if you see a culvert screen plugged, do not remove the screen. Please contact the Office to report it. It's easier for Staff to clear the screen than it is to clear the culvert. If you remove the screen, the beavers get right in the culvert and plug the end of it. When the screen is removed it makes the beaver's job easier and our job harder. Culverts are being checked regularly.  Thank you for your cooperation.
