Thanks to Almont Police Chief Pat Nael for a great link to important information that could save a life during this winter driving season. Please check out ready.gov/winter-weather for a list of ways to be prepared for winter weather and extreme cold. The website has ideas to help winterize your home and vehicle. It also gives tips on what to do if you are stranded in your vehicle. The site discusses being aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide and how to make an emergency kit for your car. This is great information for every home owner and driver to read. Thanks again Chief Nael!
Please take a few hours and let your voice be heard regarding Almont’s future.

Almont Township is located in Lapeer County, Michigan. The Township’s eastern boundary forms a border with St. Clair County, while the southern boundary is shared with Macomb County. The Township of 6500 residents includes the Village of Almont and offers a peaceful country atmosphere and rich heritage. Almont is a convenient commute to Macomb County and Oakland County.
The Township is linked to the larger southeast Michigan region by several important transportation routes which cross in or near the Township. Chief among these are M-53 and I-69. M-53 is a State trunkline, providing a north-south route between Detroit to the south and Port Austin to the north. I-69 bisects M-53 just north of the Township in an east-west direction, linking Port Huron with Lansing, Grand Rapids and Indiana.
