NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
DRIVEWAY PLOWING TIP
The best way to plow your driveway is to push the snow to the right side when facing the street. Try not to pile snow on the left side where your driveway meets the street. This will minimize the chance of our snowplow trucks pushing the snow you just plowed back into your driveway. Please keep in mind that no matter what process you follow, there still will be some snow that ends up in your driveway.
- Mailbox maintenance is the responsibility of the homeowner and now would be a good time to check the condition of your mailbox and post. The snow leaving the plow blade can be very heavy and a rotted post or loose mailbox might not withstand the impact. CRETE TOWNSHIP WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR REPLACING ANY BOX OR POST THAT WAS IN NEED OF REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT. Also, if you need to replace your mailbox we request that you install a metal “rural type” box with a wood post rather than the “plastic” types which are not very durable and are prone to cracking in cold weather.
TREE TRIMMING AND REMOVAL
The Road District will be trimming and removing trees within the road right-of-way throughout the township in the coming months, weather permitting. If you have any questions, please call our office at 672-7732.

HELP KEEP CRETE TOWNSHIP BEAUTIFUL
Trash that is thrown along are roadways is a big problem. It costs taxpayers thousands of dollars per year in labor, fuel, and dumping costs to keep our ditches clean.You can help. Please discard your trash in an approved container. A good time to do this is when you are buying gas or at any other place that has a trash receptacle. If everyone works together we can reduce these costs and keep our Township looking beautiful.Thank you!
LEAF AND BRANCH BURNING
Residents in the unincorporated areas are permitted to burn leaves and branches that are generated on their own property. To eliminate the possibility of false alarms, please contact the Crete Township Fire Protection District at 708-672-7111 or the Steger Estates Fire Protection District at 708-748-4816 to notify them of your burn date.
