Dear editor,

Bob and I have lived in Springfield Twp. For 51 years and we have always supported every levy that has been on the ballot. This November we will have the opportunity to vote for a renewal police levy and a 1.3-millage levy to keep our parks maintained and growing.

We are very fortunate to live in a community with our own Police Dept. and they are fantastic. A lot of surrounding communities depend on the Sheriff’s Office for their policing.

As township residents, we enjoy the protection of our Police Department as well as all the amenities of our Parks. If you haven’t visited the Lakefront recently, please do. Mr. (Doug) Foltz, our parks director, has done a fabulous job, applying for grants that enable us to expand the walking trails, the wonderful playground for children and families (look at the pirate ship) and the adult exercise equipment, and much more. Please support our police and parks on Nov. 7.

One last thought .. our federal funds have been cut by approximately $800,000.

Bob and Wanda Beasley,
Springfield Township
