A small group of volunteers helped the township fix swings, swap out vandalized panels, and replace faded sails above Harris Township’s Park at Brummitt Road. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the team who worked so hard to improve the community.
The mulch was recently refreshed, too. Doesn’t the park look great? We think so. THANKS again.
The pickleball nets at the Elm Road park will come down for the winter in November, with the exact date being weather-dependent.
We hope you enjoyed the first full year of play.
EXPLORER DOME – now available at Harris Township Park at Elm Road, between the library and the fire station on Elm Road, north of State Road 23. Brought to you by your Harris Township elected officials: Board members Jeff Broadwick, Chuck Sulok and Karen Vargo, and Township Trustee Kenneth E. (Ken) Lindsay
Another addition to Harris Township Park at Elm Road is almost complete. Any guesses? Stay tuned for updates.
Harris Township has two cemeteries, two parks, and the trustee office. Not that much, but it takes work – and therefore cost – to keep everything clean and well maintained.
At the Elm Road park, we’ve seen litter a few feet from a garbage can, watched a youngster climb up on the basketball hoop and others mark the court surfaces with skateboard and bike wheels.
Recently at the Brummitt Road park, cars entered in the dead of night to rip up the new parking lot surface.
So, dear taxpayer, we’re spending your money to put up signs that ask people not to do such things. It is one more step in our quest to provide and preserve top-notch facilities for your use. We’re realists, but also hopeful. Would you please pass the word – to your family, your neighborhood, and your fellow visitors – that their help to that end is appreciated.
Trustee Ken Lindsay

In order to maintain awareness of sex offenders living in your neighborhood, the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department added a Sex Offender Registry to their website. The registry will allow you to enter any local address. It will then provide a list of all registered St. Joseph County sex offenders living within a one-mile radius within the boundaries of St. Joseph County. If you are looking for information about a particular sex offender, registered in St. Joseph County, the registry can help there as well.
