Reporting an issue to the Township of Franklin, just got a little easier. 

Township Manager, Bob Vornlocker announced a new way for residents to report potholes, and other maintenance issues within the town via a new section on the township's website, during Tuesday's council meeting.

In the past, residents had to sign up for an account with the township, but with this new method all they would need to do is report the issue and provide an email address. 

Click here to submit an issue.  

"You can report streetlights out, tall grass, guide rail problems, (street) sign problems, traffic lights and the like," Vornlocker said. "All we ask is that you give us an email address so if we have to ask a follow-up question, we can do that. I just warn all of you if you expect to get follow up emails on that method of reporting you will not get them."

The public can also report graffiti, roadway debris/litter, and deer carcass, according to the township's website.

After the issue is reported the appropriate local, county or state authority will be notified to make the repair. 

Submission status will not be updated via this method of reporting an issue.

If someone wants to report their issue in a more formal manner they can do so by clicking here. Vornlocker did not say what the turn around time would be regarding requests made to the township.
