Check Taxing District when paying for License Plates

Make sure when you purchase your license plates, either new or renewal,

that your taxing district is correct. The taxing district determines the amount

of permissive tax assessed and the amount of tax Canton Township

receives from each license fee.

These funds are used by the Township Road Department to plan,

construct, maintain and repair the township maintained roads.

A problem occurs when the taxing district is not the same as the

homeowner’s mailing address.

Pothole Patching Information

The Road Department will do its best to keep our roads free from potholes.   The asphalt companies do not begin to make hot patch until the middle to end of April each year.  During the winter months, we will be using cold patch until hot mix is available.  "Cold mix" is a special winter mix that helps ensure adhesion during colder weather.  It is also used when regular asphalt is not available.
If you have a pothole concern or road concern, please click here to report the problem.

Mailbox Placement

Here are some helpful guidelines to follow when installing your mailbox:

  • Position your mailbox 41" to 45" from the road surface to the bottom of the mailbox or point of mail entry.

  • Place your mailbox 6" to 8" back from the curb. If you do not have a raised curb, contact your local postmaster for guidance.

  • Put your house or apartment number on the mailbox.

  • If your mailbox is on a different street from your house or apartment, put your full street address on the box.

  • If you are attaching the box to your house, make sure the postal carrier can reach it easily from your sidewalk, steps, or porch.
