Brandon Twp.- Township residents with Oxford or Clarkston mailing addresses will find a fiscal priorities survey inserted in today's edition of The Citizen.

The survey, included in last week's edition for all Ortonville mailing addresses, asks Brandon Township residents to rank the importance of 13 services currently offered, including fire, police, recreation, roads and senior citizen programs. Additionally, the survey seeks opinions on reductions and eliminations in expenditures as well as possible fees and millage increases the township board is considering to increase revenue.

Supervisor Kathy Thurman said several surveys have already been completed and returned. Township officials hope to have a heavy response to the survey, in order to determine how to balance budgets for the next three years amidst declining tax revenue and increased expenses.

Extra copies of the survey are available at the township offices and should be completed and mailed or dropped off by Aug. 7 to Township Supervisor Kathy Thurman, 395 Mill St., Ortonville, MI 48462. The survey is also available online at www.brandontownship.us.

The survey can also be completed online by going to www.brandontownship.us and clicking on the survey link to Survey Monkey.
