Notice tof EHT residents and taxpayers!
First Day of Winter 2016
December 21st. 32 degrees, a light wind, snow in the forecast, a perfect day to take advantage of all that winter has to offer. The cross country ski trail is groomed, the ice rink has yet to be flooded, but its in the works....and it seems like everyone is ready for the Holidays!
We are getting caught up here in the office. Your new Treasurer is absorbing all the information that Ann Johnson can throw at her! Fortunately Ann is going to stay on as Deputy Treasure for a little bit, to make the transition smooth for all involved! Everything else has remained relatively unchanged.
We received word last week that our Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund grants BOTH were recommended for funding to the State Legislature! We will know more in the coming months, but a fundraising drive will soon commence to pull together the matching funds necessary for the purchase of these two parcels. One parcel will add to the Brockway Mountain property, and the other is a key piece to our Recreation Area west of town, including the cross country ski trail.
From everyone here at the Township Office, please enjoy your holiday season, and please stop in when you're around....the coffee is always on!
To keep up on what else is going on in the Township, be sure to
check the Notices - Channel 28 link to the left.
Please let us know if there is something we can do for you, that’s why we’re here. ..……questions, comments – firstname.lastname@example.org
Eagle Harbor Township Solid Waste Facitily is still recycling
The Recycling Program is changing......Again!
Our solid waste committee put together a grant application to start some cardboard recycling here at our facility. We received a $6000 grant to purchase a baler, and have started to bale cardboard. Currently we are accepting corrugated cardboard boxes, flattened, and not food contaminated (pizza boxes.) Please bring your cardboard during regular Solid Waste Facility hours. We are also looking at other materials in the near future!!
So far we have collected over Twenty Three (yes 23) tons of cardboard! Thanks for helping to remove that from the waste stream!!
All other paper products can be handled as in the past. We are still taking metal - crushed cans, lids, scrap, lawnmowers, etc. Look for the large dumpster at the Solid Waste Facility.
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!!
Upcoming Meetings at the Township Hall
Regular Twp. Board 2nd Monday of the month at 7:00 PM
Always check the Channel 28 Link at the bottom left, to see what other happenings are in the works.

If you click on the MAP button at the top right of the data and let the stations load, you can zoom out on the map and look at weather data all over the world! Thanks to John Lenters for the setup and we look forward to more weather related information from him in the near future!

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.
