With winter upon us, one of the most common questions received in the township office is "why hasn't my road been plowed?" The Road Commission prioritizes snow removal based on traffic flows and road use. The attached map will show their snow removal policy and practices.

If you would like to report an issue about a road in our Township, tree blocking the road, pot hole in road, road sign damaged or down, call the Township office or the Road Commission of Kalamazoo County at www.kcrc-roads.com . Many voices are better than one. If it is an emergency and after regular business hours, call 911 and they will contact the Road Commission of Kalamazoo County.
Roadwork in Richland Township The Richland Township Board Road Committee annually reviews the road conditions in the Township. With input from the RCKC, the Board acquires estimates for possible Township funded capital projects for the following year. When the budget is assembled, the Board selects the projects. Road maintenance, hole repair, and mowing is paid by the RCKC from the state funds that they receive so the Township only budgets for the capital projects.
