Good Afternoon Community Members. Please be advised that due to strong storms last night, 08/02/2015, Gerrish Township has experienced a large area of trees and power lines down throughout the Township. The Gerrish Township Police Department and the Township Hall have also been hit with this power outage as well as the loss of our main phone systems. If you have an emergency please call 911. If you need assistance from the Township Hall you can stop in as the offices are staffed and running on generator power. Drinking water and bathroom facilities are available at the Township Hall and the Township Fire Hall at this time. The back up generator at the Police Department has failed and we are continuing to work hard to get the Police Department backup and running on generator power. Again, the entire area has suffered with a significant numbers of trees and lines down and the information we have received from consumers power is it may be days before all power is restored. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work hard bringing our services back up to speed.
