Click here for the notice.
We have received another report of theft from Walnut Shores. Please
look out for yourselves, and your neighbors.
We have received complaints related to noise late at night. The origin
of the noise is people on boats or pontoons, and people on the island.
Please keep in mind
noise travels very easily across the water, especially at night.
Many of your neighbors work during the week, so being awakened by excessive
noise at 2 AM is disruptive to their need for sleep. We are a
community of over 600 people trying to peacefully coexist. Please
consider your neighbors when you are out having fun.
remind your near adult teenagers this applies to them as well. Many of
our island related complaints are a result of gatherings of teenagers.
Explosive fireworks, despite the new fireworks law, remain illegal when they
exceed local noise ordinance limits, except for the day before, the day of,
and the day after a national holiday.
Finally, RLI does
not have police powers. If you have a noise complaint which needs to
be immediately addressed, please contact the Livingston County Sheriff by
calling 911. These types of incidents are classified as disturbing the
peace and disorderly conduct. Since these are generally criminal
offenses, the Sheriff is your best resource to file a complaint and to get
some resolution, with or without an arrest.

Sewer Rate Increase!
On 2/5/13 the Tyrone Township Board approved
an increases to our quarterly sewer O&M fees, effective with our 4/1/13
billing. This increase is in
response to a rate increase by Livingston County effective 1/1/13. RLI remains
concerned about the large cost incurred by RLI Members while most of the
Tyrone Township sewer system remains unused. We will continue to work with the Drain
Commission and Township in an effort to control costs and require others to
pay their fair share. Please contact Keith Kremer, Clerk, and
Marna Bunting-Smith, Treasurer, @ 810-629-8631 with your questions, concerns, or
