While not sanctioned or monitored by RLI, there is a Runyan Lake Inc. Facebook account many people around the lake are using to communicate.  
Facebook Group Name: Runyan Lake Association. 

People must be approved to be part of the group!

Please keep in mind RLI does not own or monitor this account.  All inquiries to RLI must be made via Contact Us to reach us.

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 Marcella Husted, Clerk, and Jennifer Eden, Treasurer, @ 810-629-8631 with your questions, concerns, or complaints.

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

Fish Study Support
Thanks to those who helped out!

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.

Goose Control
As requested by the Membership, a permit has been obtained for the removal of geese from Runyan Lake.  Removal occurred on June 28th.  See the Goose Management page for more information.
