Notice to EHT residents and taxpayers




A view out of my window......


Wow, May 5th 2017.  We've been busy up here, and if you read these notes frequently, you'll notice the view from my window has changed!  Who ever thought that the most sought after -corner office - would be in Eagle Harbor.  The Township Hall remodel job is nearing the end.  Marlin has been busy along with a handful of volunteers, to re-purpose the old meeting space, remodel the inside bathroom, build a secure records room, and finally re-purpose the old office space.  The project will give much needed space to elected officials and employees, a better meeting room and gathering place for Township residents, and further the lifespan of this building.  When your in town, please stop by for a tour!

This is always a slower time in the Township.  Residents are slowly coming back to open up, turn on water, clean the yard of the winter debris, and relish in the fresh air.  The big happening in town yesterday was the Coast Guard setting the bell buoy.....yes the small one again this year.  It still amazes me when the buoy goes in and I can hear the ringing at my house, how for months I forget I live next to this beautiful body of water.

Well, I don't really forget, but it is somehow comforting to hear that familiar ring again!  We are getting ready for our meeting on Monday evening, business as usual.  The leaves are beginning to pop, the grass is thinking about sprouting, the sun is definitely warmer, and the prospects of summer loom towards the end of the month!


From everyone here at the Township Office, please stop in when you're around....the coffee is always on!

Please let us know if there is something we can do for you, that’s why we’re here. ..……questions, comments – supervisor@eagleharbortwp.org

New Interested in Volunteering?


Next Phase!!!       April 22nd, 2016
Eagle Harbor Township is going to be looking for some volunteer labor!!  With the new Emergency Services Building complete, we have our next phase of the project - to re-purpose the existing fire department garage.

Well, we're moving on...... We've already had a couple meetings, and the meeting room is done with a couple of small projects left in there.  Now we will move into the old meeting space.   The plan is to remodel that into office space to separate some of the elected officials and employees into a better arrangement for working.  

If you are looking for some extra work while you're in the Harbor, and want to donate your time, please get a hold of me or Marlin!!

New!!Assessors Plat of Hebard Park NoticeNew!!


It is with great joy that we announce the recording of the Hebard Park Plat!!!!!  It's been 17 years in the making.  After we get all the paperwork in order we will send a letter to the property owners in the plat, if there is anything they need to do.  Any questions don't hesitate to call the office and ask for Rich.



 

Insurance Classification!

This past year we had an ISO insurance audit here at the Township.  They look at things like our water system, fire department equipment, and personnel and other factors.  Our classification went from an 8 down to a 5, which is a reflection of the good things that the Township has done in previous years.  


Please check with your home owners insurance carrier to see if this has been addressed on your individual policy....It may save you some money!!

  Eagle Harbor Township Emergency Services Building Progress


Update!.....The Emergency Services Building is now complete.  We occupied the building on February 2nd, 2015 and are now holding meetings there, and working on finding final resting places to store things....so much room!  The Complex Committee held a Grand Opening event on July 19th, 2015 from 1-4 PM, and it was very well attended, thank you community for being involved!

There is now work to be done on the existing Fire Hall and Office Space (Phase 2.)  Our vision is a new larger Community Room and updated office space for elected officials and employees.  Work has started and will continue throughout the summer and fall.  Check out the links below for a sketch of proposed ideas and please send comments along to the address or phone number below.

The Parks and Recreation Committee has openings in the following Sub-Committees:


The Park sub-committee is looking for members and perhaps a person that has some interest in heading this committee.  Their responsibility involves the township owned land and its uses, and following/updating the 5 year Recreation Plan.  Maintaining the recreation trails and looking for possible expansion of township trails and property is also the responsibilities of the Park sub-committee.  Please email supervisor@eagleharbortwp.org for more information.


The Beach sub-Committee is also looking for some fresh faces.  The Beach committee takes care of the beach, setting the raft in the spring and pulling it in the fall, along with the swim buoys.  They also recommend to the township board, items that improve the beach experience.  If you are only a summer resident up here, this might be the best way to get involved and help out!  Please email supervisor@eagleharbortwp.org for more information.
