boating around the island since the area is generally shallow and any
objects in the water can result in contact with outdrives and propellers.

rocks from our seawall were thrown into the navigation area around the
island dock. Please avoid the area around the island until further
notice to avoid damage to stern drives, outboard motors, and propellers.

Sewer Rate Increase!
On 12/3/13 the Tyrone Township Board approved
another increase to our quarterly sewer O&M fees for 2014. This increase is in
response to a rate increase by Livingston County effective 1/1/14. 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
2003 quarterly rate: $60.00
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
(Current) 2014 rate: $201.25
We now pay $841/yr for sewer service, an increase
of $601 (350%) 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
