Thank you Danbury Township

I want to thank the Danbury Township crew, especially Brett Waldron for taking care of a sewer problem. I also want to send a thank you to Chief Meisler and Officers Brandon and John for checking daily on an 87 year old person with the window card program. 

Also a special thanks to Officer Brandon Taylor for his personal help. These guys are true lifesavers and I cannot thank them enough.

The best,
Dave Kirkwood
