Township Office Closure:
To protect and minimize exposure for residents and Township staff, Spring Arbor Township offices will be closed to the public. We expect to be closed following the new COVID-19 restrictions under State of Michigan Pause to Save Lives initiative.
During this time, nearly all township services are still available via phone, email or by appointment. You may make payments by utilizing electronic payment methods or at the drop boxes located in the driveway of township complex or at the main door of township building. Employees will be working, but we will have limited staff in the offices. Those who can accomplish their jobs remotely will do so under current MIOSHA work rules.
Police, Fire, Water and Sewer operations will continue to provide essential services. The public safety building is closed to visitors or by appointment only.
We will continue to follow federal and state guidelines and will continue to reassess.

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: dherlein@springarbor.org or 517-750-2800 x201. Thank you for your continued patience during this project and the M-60 MDOT project this year.
