Notice to Eagle Harbor Township residents and taxpayers

Mid-Winter blahs    

February 19th

If you are suffering from any winter blues, chin up, Spring is right around the corner!  Two weeks from Friday is the start of the Copper Dog 150 sled dog race.  The first night teams of racers will arrive starting around 11PM until 1AM.  Then Saturday morning they will depart at 9AM for Copper Harbor.  I've said this before, when February arrives, so does the longer days, milder temps, and the anticipation of Spring.  You know when the Copper Dog 150 happens, people come up to visit, and's March!

Winter taxes were due on the 14, we can accept late payments until the end of the month, then they go to the County.  2020 Notice of Assessments will go out by the 24th, and March Board of Review will happen on the 9th and 11th of March.  Otherwise, things are relatively quite around here.

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 –


 Keweenaw Outdoor Recreation Enthusiasts!

Eagle Harbor Township volunteers are grooming the cross country ski trails!  Many thanks to the Keweenaw Community Foundation, and its Keweenaw Cross Country Ski Fund that pumps local money, into local projects, that benefit everyone.  This season Eagle Harbor Township was able to leverage monies to purchase equipment that will enable volunteers to maintain the trails, and groom more efficiently.  If you enjoy cross country skiing in the Keweenaw, chances are you are benefitting from the Keweenaw Community Foundations work.  Please consider donating to the Keweenaw Cross Country Ski Endowment so they continue to help the ski trails in the area!  Visit

Weather on Brockway Mountain!!

We have been fortunate to have someone volunteer his time and resources to install a weather station at the summit of Brockway Mountain. Click either of the links below to view current data. Thanks to John Lenters for the setup and we look forward to more weather related information from him in the near future!

Due to technological difficulties - mainly the loss of 3G data compatibility - the weather station won't be up and running until Spring/Sumer 2020

    Updates will be done on a regular basis to keep you up-to-date of the grooming status.  Please remember these trails are groomed by Volunteers and supported by donations that can be made at the Trail Head Parking area, or dropped off at the Township Office.  Thank You for your support!

Thank you to the Keweenaw Community Foundation.  Through a Cross Country Ski Grant, Eagle Harbor Township was able to purchase a new pole saw for trimming the limbs back along the trail.  We also purchased a 5 1/2 foot roller that we are able to use to pack early season snow and large snowfalls easier and more efficiently.
Please think about supporting the Keweenaw Community Foundation - especially the Cross Country Ski Endowment if you enjoy skiing in the Keweenaw!
