The Emergency Snow Removal Program for Hinckley Township seniors will begin accepting applications for the 2012-2013 Season on October 1, 2012.  This program supported by the Hinckley Fire Department Community Benefit Fund, Inc. and administered by Hinckley Township provides a packet of vouchers to qualified seniors (age 65 and up) or a Disabled Person as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. 42 U.S.C. 12012.  The vouchers are then remitted to a pre-approved snow removal contractor for emergency snow removal.  Last year the program provided service for over 75 qualifying households.
