New Boating Law Effective 2019

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. 


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

 Jan. 2011 quarterly rate:  $165.75

Rate details can be found on the Sewer page.


We now pay $908/yr for sewer service, an increase of $668/yr (278%) 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!


Aquatic Weed Control

Starry Stonewort will be treated on 6/12, 7/10, 7/31, 8/21, and 9/11. General treatments were applied on 5/22 ,6/3 and 9/9.  See the weed control page for more information.  


We have a new weed control contractor for 2019 - Aqua-Weed Control Inc.  Please see the weed control page for the annual treatment notice, current treatment map, current treatment notice, treatment dates, and more details. 

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!

Goose Control
As requested by the Membership, a permit has been applied for and granted to remove the geese from Runyan Lake.  38 geese were removed on June 24th.  See the Goose Management page for more information.

Purple Loosestrife Alert

Purple Loosestrife is now in season.  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 and reseed the plant next year if not removed. This is an undesirable invasive plant that will choke out native plants.  More information and pictures can be found here.

Water Quality Testing
Samples were collected on 7/29/19.  While some areas have elevated levels due to the heavy rains in July the results remain in the safe range.  See the Water Quality page for details.
