COVID-19 UPDATE: The Spring Arbor Township Office will be open normal hours.

We are asking all residents to pay all utility bills via the dropbox located in the driveway. We are happy to take payments over the phone. Please call (517) 750-2800. For all other business, please call or email the Township Office to setup an appointment with a township representative who can meet with you to address your needs if necessary.


The difficult decision has been made that we need to CANCEL the Memorial Day parade for this year. While this event is over a month away we have no guarantees that it will be allowed. Additionally, with schools not being allowed to hold classes we will lose all bands and school groups from being a part of the parade in an organized manner. We as a township enter into contracts with groups and we spend money in advance of putting a parade event on. We are not alone in canceling events like our parade. Communities all across Michigan have done the same thing just as the City canceled the Rose parade scheduled for June yesterday. This is and was an extremely difficult decision by our Parade Committee and Township Officials. Thank you for your understanding.

Local Road Millage Press Release

September 19, 2019

We are pleased to announce that the Road Millage of 3.99 mills will be reduced to 3.25 mills on the December Winter Tax Statement. In 2017 the voters of Spring Arbor Township approved a Local Road Millage of 3.99 mills to rebuild all “LOCAL” public roads in the township. Working with JCDOT we were able to realize lower than expected construction costs, in part by starting this project in 2017. The entire project will be completed in 2020. Additionally, working with local financial partners, the Township was able to invest the bond proceeds at higher than expected interest rates. From the beginning, we promised we would prudently manage the project so that we could provide maximum value and savings to our people. This millage rate reduction will be realized on the December 2019 Winter Tax Statement.

The project remains on schedule and we expect several more roads to be completed yet this fall. If you have any questions, please contact me at: or 517-750-2800 x201. Thank you for your continued patience during this project and the M-60 MDOT project this year.
