Welcome back to all those who spent the winter away from Northern Michigan. We are all hoping for a nice and warm summer. I have enjoyed the first six months as your supervisor and look forward to working with the community in meeting the many challenges the township is working through.
The Community Service Building (CSB) is open for business as we weathered the COVID challenges and multiple ZOOM meetings.
We implemented the new budget for Fiscal Year ’21-’22 in April and spent time explaining our taxes to the community during the March budget meeting. In short, for every dollar you see on your tax bill, only $0.14 comes to the Township with the balance going to County and School taxes. That $0.14 is split between: General Fund $0.03; Fire Fund $0.03; Ambulance Fund $0.06; Road Fund $0.02. You can find the budget details on the Township website.
Major capital expenditures associated with our roads and overdue maintenance to the CSB are being undertaken this summer.
We expect significant activity at the day park and our boat ramp has already seen the steady flow of boat launchings.
We have opportunities for those who wish to become more active in the governing of our Township. They are as follows:
We will begin live streaming the Township Board, Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals meetings on Youtube starting in June.
As a reminder, The Township Board meets every third Tuesday of the month. The agenda is posted on the website normally by noon of the Thursday before the meeting and all relevant documents for each of the Board Actions and Discussions are posted by noon of the Saturday before the meeting.
As always, please feel free to contact me either by phone or email.
