    Reporting Potholes in Wayne County - Report A Road Hazard

    Copied from the Wayne County Website.

    Did you just hit a man-eating pothole or dodge a mattress on a freeway that fell off a truck? Maybe you just passed through an intersection where the traffic signal wasn't working or saw a missing stop sign. We want to know about it so we can take care of it. Here's how you can help us solve your road problems in Wayne County:

    Report hazards at 1-888-ROAD CREW

    report on their website - click here

    By calling this 24-hour, toll-free number, you will talk to a road maintenance employee who will take your information and direct it to the appropriate crew for action. Don't worry if the hazard you report is in Wayne County, but may not be on a county-operated road. We'll take any report that isn't ours and pass it along immediately to the appropriate city or state agency.

    SVHA Gardening Help

    A new Committee has been formed to assist n the maintenance of our Gardens surrounding the clubhouses and those adjacent to the Subdivision signs on Canton Center and at the corner of Beck and Warren Roads.

    In addition to asking for help, we are in search of some seasonal plants that residents may be willing to split from their own gardens to help populate these same areas. We are looking for perennial plants such as Black-eyed Susan's, Daffodils, Tulips, and Stella d'oro daylilies. If you have some to share, please drop them off by the garage door to the west side of the Hanford Clubhouse. We will take it from there. Thank you!
