arrowre: Questions on city use of township's sheriff services


I was just wondering if the City of the Village of Clarkston can demand that the Sheriff drives through Downtown even if they're on their way to dinner, can I demand that they start to hang out on Cramlane at the Snowapple cross street or near where it connects to Chestnut Hills Farms, to nail the speeders, stop sign ignorers and mailbox knocker overs that frequently use our neighborhood as a cut through? We've submitted requests on the Road Commission web site, asking to eliminate the cut through or make our streets for private residents only (preferred) several times, but they never respond. The current method of control is to not fix potholes, but the main stretch is in just too good of shape to thwart the scoundrels. The traffic volume and behavior on our once quiet street makes it impossible to walk safely at certain times of day. Nearly missing being hit 3 times in one walk and calling the sheriff, I've been told they just don't have the resources for traffic issues. I'd think it would be a priority; If they started ticketing all the reckless drivers it would be enough to fund both the township and the City's police force a couple of times over!
