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.


Aquatic Weed Control

Our second treatment occurred on July 21st.  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

Our Summer water samples are in -  despite the geese the E. coli counts are well within safe limits.

Goose Control

 Due to positive testing for Avian influenza in four free-ranging Canada goslings and one sub-adult goose all from Macomb County all confirmed to have been infected with the HPAI H5N2 virus, the DNR geese relocation program has been cancelled for 2015.

Community Notices

10/11/15:  Notice - The sandbar marker buoys have been removed for the season.


10/5/15:  We have been informed watercraft in the channel area are being targeted with fuel being siphoned and attempts to remove outboard motors.  Please ensure your watercraft are secure and report any suspicious activities to the Livingston County Sheriff by calling 911.  Keep in mind as the days have grown significantly shorter there is additional opportunity for those looking to steal items under the cover of darkness.


7/1/15:  Please read our email sent on 6/28 to all RLI Members.


5/31/15:  Please read our email sent on 5/31 to all RLI Members.


5/11/15:  A spring reminder from the Livingston County Sheriff -

Remember to take valuables out of cars parked in driveways and also lock your cars. Its that time of year where kids start "car hopping", which is a felony. Also secure anything on boats and keep sheds locked.  Report any suspicious people or activity to. 911.


1/31/15:  The Dates & Events page has been updated for 2015.


1/25/15:  There have been several daytime breaking and enterings around Tyrone Twp and the Northwest part of Deerfield Twp.

Keep your homes and vehicles locked and report any suspicious vehicles or people to 911.


10/1/14: We are having issues with our website client emails.  Until further notice, to contact RLI please send an email to us directly using

Sewer Rate Increase!

On 12/16/14 the Tyrone Township Board approved an increase to our quarterly sewer O&M fees for 2015.  This increase is in response to a rate increase by Livingston County effective 1/1/15.  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 complaints. 


2003 quarterly rate: $60.00

2004 quarterly rate: $75.00


        2007 quarterly rate:  $117.01

Jan. 2010 quarterly rate:  $136.50

 Oct. 2010 quarterly rate: $160.75

Jan. 2011 quarterly rate:  $165.75

April 2012 quarterly rate:  $170.50
April 2013 quarterly rate:  $185.50

 Jan. 2014 quarterly rate:  $201.25


Jan 2015 (current) rate: $205.70



We now pay $823/yr for sewer service, an increase of $583 (243%) 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!
