Shelby Township is hoping to see approximately 800 orange-vestclad
volunteers spread out along local roads and collecting garbage during the annual Clean
Up Day on Saturday, April 30.
Shelby Township Clerk Stanley Grot was recognized at the Aug. 4 Board of Trustees meeting for meeting the program criteria to obtain the prestigious Certified Michigan Municipal Clerk designation.
The recent U.S. Supreme Court decision allowing prayers before public meetings has prompted

Shelby Township Clerk Stanley Grot won approval from the board of trustees to give officeholders the option of
ending their sworn oath with "so help me God."
