Boat Ramp Access
There are no set hours for the boat ramp.  For an appointment, riparian Members please call a trustee with at least 24 hours advance notice.

Appointments cannot be made online. Your 2016 dues must be paid, your watercraft legally registered, and your boat sticker on your watercaft to use the ramp.  Click HERE for more information.


Goose control petition status: 

72% in favor

Goal: > 75%

Many of you did not return your petition form with your dues payment. Please send or email the completed petition to us. The alternative is your shore area and our island being full of....ummmm....goose "stuff"!  Thank you!

Update - The MDEQ has mishandled our application this year so there will be no goose removal.  A formal complaint will be filed.


Purple Loosestrife Alert

If you see and can access the invasive plant Purple Loosestrife (spikes of purple flowers), please cut off the blooms and bag them carefully in a plastic garbage bag. Tie up the bag and place it in your trash. One plant has millions of seeds that will fall if not removed. This is an undesirable invasive plant that will choke out native plants.  More information and pictures can be found here.


Fishing Contest

The 2016 fishing contest is June 24 - July 1.  See the fishing page for more details and past contest winners.


Aquatic Weed Control

Weed treatment were applied June 13th and July 18th.  Please see the weed control page for the current treatment map, current treatment notice, annual treatment notice, treatment dates, and more details. 


 Water Quality Testing Results

Water samples were collected on June 1st and August 2nd.  All samples tested within the acceptable/normal range.


Goose Control

 There were insufficient petition signatures at the application deadline so we are stuck with the geese this year.  If you have not returned your petition form please do so to ensure we can participate in the USDA goose control program.

Website Forms Not Working

Unfortunately, our website host now requires us to use one of their unsecured contact forms.  Despite our best efforts the forms have been repeatedly hacked to the point where we no longer receive emails using their form.  Therefore, until further notice, please submit all requests to RLI by emailing us directly at



Found Item:

A pontoon style raft with blue carpet floated up to shore today.  On it was a jet ski hoist.  The raft has "private" and "keep off" on the sides. It has been partially pulled ashore, as much as possible. It can be currently found at 10524 Runyan Lake Court. 



High Water and Wind Advisory:
The National Weather Service is predicting heavy rain during the next 30 hours, with potential wind gusts to 60 mph.  The water level of Runyan Lake is already elevated from recent rains.  Please check your shoreline to be sure your valuables are well above the current water level and secured.

Sewer Rate Increase!

On 12/1/15 the Tyrone Township Board approved increases to our quarterly sewer O&M fees for 2016 - 2021 of approximately 3.5% annually.  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 Marcie Husted, Clerk, and Marna Bunting-Smith, Treasurer, @ 810-629-8631 with your questions, concerns, or complaints. 


2003 quarterly rate: $60.00 (Runyan Lake Community Septic System)

2004 quarterly rate: $75.00 (Livingston Regional Sewer System)


        2007 quarterly rate:  $117.01

Jan. 2010 quarterly rate:  $136.50

 Oct. 2010 quarterly rate: $160.75

We now pay $852/yr for sewer service, an increase of $612/yr (255%) since 2003!  This does not include the special assessment levied for the 2003 system upgrade, an additional $300/yr for most, or the additional $650 assessment for the grinder pump!


Are we really paying our fair share or are we subsidizing the rest of the undeveloped system?  Ask your township officials!
