Thomas Township

Due to the Covid-19 virus and Governors Executive Order we will be making the following changes to our spring programs effective immediately:

  • Girls Softball is cancelled for the season.
  • Spring Soccer will begin June 6th and run for 4 weeks.
  • Spring Flag Football will begin June 6th and run for 4 weeks.
  • Men’s Slowpitch Softball will begin June 9th.

We hope you all are staying safe and abiding by the Stay Home Sta Safe Executive Order. We will be issuing refunds to those participants already registered in our programs or provide credit if they choose. Our Spring Soccer and Flag Football will only be 4 weeks long so we have reduced the fee to match that change. Residents will pay 40 and Non-Residents will pay $45. If you have an questions please don’t hesitate to call the Parks Office at (989) 781-0150.

Thank You,

John Corriveau 

Director of Parks & Recreation

FROM MID MICHIGAN WASTE AUTHORITY:

 

RECYCLING AND TRASH COLLECTION:

At this time, both WM and our new processor, American Waste, have indicated there is no impact on recycling collection for participating MMWA member communities.

Trash collection, which is an essential service, is continuing as usual. Residents are reminded to have all properly prepared materials placed at the curb no later than 7 am on their regular collection day.

 

YARD WASTE:

We have a COVID-19 update for residents in MMWA member communities with yard waste collection. Yard waste collection will not begin on April 1, 2020, and will be delayed until at least April 14, 2020. MMWA is focused on the safety of our residents and collection workers. We thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times.

 

BULKY ITEMS:

We have another COVID-19 update for residents in all MMWA member communities. Beginning April 1, 2020, through at least April 13, 2020, bulk items will no longer be collected. Bulk items, which are usually thought of as a couch or refrigerator, are any items not contained in a bag or can. Regular trash collection services will continue. Residents should bag or contain in a can all of their regular household trash. Each bag or can should weigh no more than 50 pounds. Thank you and please give your collection worker plenty of room to safely collect your materials.

Pursuant to guidance from the Michigan Health and Human Services due to COVID-19, all Thomas Township passport services are suspended.
