Notice to EHT residents and taxpayers!! New
Memorial Day Weekend.
The official start to the summer season begins this weekend! Although we have had some temperatures into the 80's, it hasn't felt quite like summer yet. We are starting to see the seasonal residents come back into town and the water turn-ons are coming in fast and furious! The welcome rain for the last couple of days is really starting to green things up, and help with local blood donations..... yes, the bugs are out!
We've been working of a couple of projects this spring and winter. The Center Street Drain Committee hasn't met this spring, but we have submitted a grant application to see if some of the infrastructure costs can be aided with a FEMA grant for the drain at Center Street and Front Street in the village. The township has submitted two grant applications to Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund for acquisition of two parcels in the Township, one at Great Sand Bay and the other just south of the Brockway Mountain Summit. We will know more in the coming months. Mr Lantz was in the office today preparing for the annual Memorial Day Ceremony at the Pine Grove Cemetery. He is running the show with Don Masnado, Steve Kellow, Jim and Sandi Boggio. The program begins at 10AM on Monday morning and is a great way to pay tribute to those who have paid the ultimate price in active military service for our country.
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 – email@example.com
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 six 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

Surplus Equipment for Sale New
At the Regular January Board Meeting, the board voted to surplus some equipment that the township is not using. We have one piece of gasoline powered equipment for sale: a wheelbarrow type 6HP 10.5 GPM Air Compressor-$450. It has never been run by us, but appears to be in good condition. Check the link below for pictures and more information.
Interested people apply within!!
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 firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com for more information.

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!!
