is a township and not a city or a village, the township government does not own
or maintain roads. This is why our
property taxes are so low (?) According
to their website (here),
cities, villages, counties, and the state (MDOT) have jurisdiction over roads.
“Residential streets are built by developers and paid for by homeowners
as part of the cost of their homes.
Therefore the cost of paving or resurfacing private roads is generally
the property owner's responsibility.”
However, we have verified with the Township Engineers office
(734-394-5150) that all of the roads in Glengarry (1, 2, 3, and 456) are the
responsibility of Wayne County,
not the property owners.
Using the link above or Canton’s
“I Want To …” link,
you can report serious road problems (such as very large potholes) to Wayne
County and a lot of other useful
things (vandalism, noisy neighbors, etc.) to Canton
“To report hazardous road conditions please contact Wayne
County at 888/ROAD-CREW
(888 762 3273). You may contact this number 24 hours a day, 7
days a week. Please reserve calls for
hazardous conditions only such as large potholes, malfunction traffic signals,
or flooded roads.”
Our experience is that a call to this number regarding Glengarry
Boulevard between Canton
Center and Turnberry usually
results in a patching crew within a few days.

investigating a permanent repair to this portion of Glengarry
Boulevard, click here.
