New A Note to Township residents and taxpayers
October 1st.....Well, after the storm several weeks ago, the landscape at the beach has certainly changed. We had a pounding northeast wind with heavy rain that lasted for the better part of a whole day. The waves were so large on the beach in Eagle Harbor, that waves and debris were washing up to the road in front of Carltons The waves pulled much of the sand away from the beach, the slides now have a 18" drop to the sand. The iconic dock that protruded into the harbor from the Lake Breeze was battered beyond belief, and much of the timbers and debris that were contained in the dock, washed up on our beach. With the hard work of many residents and township personnel, the timbers and debris were cleaned up, and now we have to wait for the sand to come back.
The last week in September had temperatures into the seventies and eighties and then dropped back to normal 40's and that's where we are now. Resident water turn-offs are coming in fast, and woodpiles are stocking up for the winter. The color is changing rapidly with peak color expected for this weekend. The builders are pouring the final concrete for the walls this week, then working on framing for the new Emergency Services Building. Everything is starting to get quiet here in the Harbor...........
Please let us know if there is something we can do for you, that’s why we’re here. ..……questions, comments – email@example.com

New Eagle Harbor Township Solid Waste Facitily is still recycling
The Recycling Program has changed!
Due to the Goodwill discontinuing their recycling program we are left with nowhere to take our plastic and paper products. We will continue to take metal, and go back to the old methods for paper products.
If anyone has ideas or leads for recycling, please contact Doug Schubert, or Rich Probst at the Township office.
Thanks for understanding, as we continue to look for alternatives!
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
