There has been questions regarding the use of sharpies on the current election ballots.  Michigan Secretary of State office sent us this statement:

Fact check:  The use of a Sharpie to mark a ballot will not invalidate or cancel a ballot or vote.  If the marker does bleed through to other side, ballots are designed so that the bleed through does not touch or come near a voting area on the other side of the ballot.  It will not alter or cancel any vote on the opposite side.  The Sharpie is the recommended marking instrument by the tabulator manufacturer and is preferable to an ink pen because it dries quickly and will not leave residue on the ballot scanner.

The Fall Clean-up we had on October 3 was a success.  The weather was wonderful and everyone was great.  We would like to give a big Thank You to the volunteers: Dave Jonas, From the Fire Department: Oscar Placher, Spencer Engelter , From the Township: Keith Acker, Dwight Vanwinkle, Terry Langston, Jeff Hale, Betty Sue VanWinkle, Ken Powers, Kim Britten, Linda Rogers.  As Always Emmons sent great workers: Johnny Wilers, Gary Worden, James Kloepfer.


We would like to announce a new member of our Township. Julie Pulling.

Julie is our new Assessor and will be in the office on Wednesdays. You may reach Julie at 517-784-4712 Ext 5 for an appointment.

We wish Julie the best and we hope everyone will welcome Julie to the Township.
