Welcome to Byron Township's Website!
Our early winter in December started with a bang with three weekends in a row with measurable snow. With no freezing temeratures before snow fall it left roadways very soft and difficult for our snowplowers to navigate and keep damage to roadways at a minimum. As the temperatures got into the 60s and 70s in late winter months we were able to get out and sweep all township roads.
Roads are posted for weight as the frost comes out and road beds become soft.
