Runyan Lake ice conditions*:  "UNSAFE"  Ice conditions have deteriorated during the warmer temperatures of late.  Runyan Lake ice conditions are no longer safe for any use.    (3/23/15)  

*There may be ice in the cove and channel areas of better quality.  As always, use caution!  Tell someone before going out onto the ice and when you expect to be back.  Never attempt a rescue of pets or persons without the help of others.  Ice on Runyan Lake varies in quality around the lake, is unpredictable, and is often of poor quality.  While other area lakes may have good ice conditions, Runyan Lake often has poor or marginal conditions.  In temperatures above 28 degrees the ice will rapidly melt from underneath, resulting in weakened ice conditions.  Have fun, but be safe!

Proxy Ballot


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.

Our last general lake treatment was July 21st.  Please see the weed control page for the current treatment map, current treatment notice, annual treatment notice, treatment dates, and more details.

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!
