Roadwork in Richland Township -The Richland Township Board Road Committee annually reviews the road conditions in the Township. With input from the RCKC, the Board acquires estimates for possible Township funded capital projects for the following year. When the budget is assembled, the Board selects the projects. Road maintenance, hole repair, and mowing is paid by the RCKC from the state funds that they receive so the Township only budgets for the capital projects.
