Most all of the schools in the Thumb have virtual learning options in place, not all places have good internet service.
To help with that, school districts have set up hotspots in strategic locations in the district to help provide internet service for students.
The Dayton Township Hall at 4879 Hurds Corner Road, Mayville, is a hotspot location for the Mayville Community School District.
The township received a thank-you note from the Mayville Schools for allowing them to place a mobile hotspot at the township hall so that students could sit in the parking lot and access the internet for remote learning.
Also, the school district hired Roxanne Walker as a Virtual School Teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.
During the township meeting, roads were discussed.
During public comment, a resident noted the roads in the township are holding up well.
Supervisor Bob Cook agreement the Tuscola County Road Commission has done a lot of work on township roads and they are grateful.
And, regarding Lee Hill Road, 1-foot of gravel from the Hunter pit is being added to it, and crushed gravel will be put on top with chloride.
The grading of the township's parking lot was done by Gooses DirtWorks for free, and Bob Hunter donated several loads of pit run for the base.
Another issue with roads that was brought up by Trustee Greg Lotter was about trees hanging over the roads that could cause potential problems.
The board took the issue under advisement and will look into what can be done.
- There is a foundation at the West Dayton Cemetery that needs to be removed in order to do more to do more burials.
Treasurer Eleanor Kilmer is to get a quote on the cost to remove it, and Deputy Clerk Nancy Shaver will help with the layout plans for the cemetery.
