A Message From Your Supervisor....
“Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” - Lady Bird Johnson
Spring has arrived and provides a reaffirmation that continued focus on Recreation/Leisure Services, and
working toward the expansion of non-motorized and waterway paths within our approved Master Plan, is
vital to this community. Numerous studies have shown that the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual
benefits of purely being outside are tremendous. I am proud of the progress we have made in our Parks and
Pathways projects thus far, and I am very optimistic looking toward the future.
Another focus we have is the expansion and improvement of internal technology. We are moving along with
a massive upgrade to the Township-wide BS&A Cloud Platform upgrade. This software upgrade will improve
several on-line services for our residents, along with improving governmental transparency. The training and
implementation for this project is scheduled to take place in July, 2022.
Bluebeam is a software program, implemented in late 2021, that allows our Township teams to create, share,
and review large scale building and engineering plans. This program has had a marked improvement in the
sharing of information between departments and allows better service to our residents.
In the Supervisor’s Office we continue to stress the importance of both internal and external communication.
Our Facebook page and website continue to post relevant and timely updates. Please follow us on our social
media platforms, including YouTube.
I am proud and excited to announce a soon to be released feature on our website. Residents and visitors will
be able to submit non-emergent requests to the township electronically. The IT Department has worked to
launch this initiative over the last several months, and it will be available the beginning of May, 2022.
As we move steadily throughout 2022, and continue to make progress on our mission, be assured we will con-
tinue to act in the best interests of our residents. By working together we can achieve more and further the
development of our beautiful Township. Be safe and enjoy the great outdoors this Spring and Summer season!

                                                                          Chesterfield Township Supervisor

“Flushable” wipes should never be flushed!

Aside from causing large problems with municipal sewer systems, wipes and other items also cause
problems in the pipes inside your home. Clogged pipes can lead to overflowing toilets, basement sewer
backups and the need to clean out the main drain. When this happens, a plumber is needed to clear
the blockage. To help avoid these problems and expenses, only flush human waste and toilet paper.

    Here is a list of other items that should never be flushed:

•    Personal and baby wipes            •   Dental floss
•    Tampons                            •   Cotton balls and swabs
•    Sanitary products                  •   Cat litter
•    Condoms                            •   Prescription drugs
•    Facial tissues                     •   Over-the-counter medicines
•    Paper towels                       •   Cigarette butts
•    Cleaning wipes and rags            •   Cooking fats, oils, or grease

Through this league, games will run with fewer players on the field to allow for more touches on the ball and more physical and mental
involvement in the game. Practices will be held on Wednesday evenings, with games held Saturdays. Teams will play seven games.
Indoor facility is available for inclement weather days. Register early; space fills fast! With registration, each player will receive a T-shirt
