From the desk of Mr. Chris Ott, Trail Creek Street Commissioner:
Beginning Monday, January 11th, the Street Department will begin the clean up of Sticks, Limbs and Branches, that were brought down by the ice storm last week. Please have all storm damage placed at the edge of your property line, parallel with the street. This aids the Street Department for quick and easier pick up as they move from house to house with equipment.

 

PLEASE REMEBER THIS IS FOR STORM DAMAGE ONLY

About Trail Creek

Often referred to as "Tree Lined Trail Creek", the town covers a wooded area of approximately 1.25 square miles with 900 homes and a population of 2,452. The town lies within portions of Michigan and Coolspring Townships.

The dividing line for these two townships is the center line of Coolspring Avenue, with Michigan Township to the North and Coolspring Township to the South. Day to day business is administered by a five person Town Council and a Clerk Treasurer who are all elected for terms of four years. In addition, the Town Council is responsible for appointing qualified residents to positions on auxiliary commissions and boards.

Town budgetary functions are paid through revenues derived from local property taxes, county and state shared taxes, shared riverboat proceeds from the City of Michigan City and some additional user fees. The town is a supporting member of various governmental and civic organizations, including the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns (IACT), Northwest Indiana Council of Towns and Small Cities (TASC), South Shore Clean Cities and Access La Porte County.
