The Sidewalk Committee consists of volunteer members who make recommendations to the Township Board regarding installation of sidewalks on main roads. The Committee recognizes the fact that Shelby is no longer a rural community and increased population and traffic has made sidewalks a necessity.
The Committee welcomes new members and input from residents as to where sidewalks are needed or wanted. Committee Chairperson, John Kocis, can be contacted through the Clerks Office at (586) 731-5102, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sidewalk Committee generally meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 5:00 p.m. in the Lower Level Conference Room of the Township Municipal Building. The public is welcome to attend. Please call or e-mail the Clerk's Office to confirm meeting date and time.
The change in seasons brings about new duties and codes for the Shelby Township Ordinance Enforcement Department. To help residents stay up-to-date on the proper and official guidelines to comply with these ordinances, the township published an at-a-glance guide for some of the moat frequent issues that arise
In the interest of promoting safe pedestrian travel, the township adopted ordinances (Section 58-528 of the Code of Ordinances) that require that defective sidewalks be maintained and repaired. Additionally, under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the township's Sidewalk Maintenance Program identifies defects and implements repairs to ensure that the sidewalks meet federal guidelines.Overseen by the Shelby Township Building Department and administered by the township engineers at Anderson, Eckstein, and Westrick, Inc., the program works with property owners to ensure resident and guest safety throughout the township.
