Runyan Lake Inc. discourages burning by members of grass clippings and leaves because they contain phosphorus and nitrogen. When released into our waterways, the phosphorus and nitrogen “fertilize” our aquatic vegetation and algae. These nutrients are carried by rain water and lawn irrigation to the water, as well as by smoke and ash released into the air. These nutrients increase weed and algae growth, and thus our costs to manage them. The smoke also irritates many of your neighbors. Did you know burning 5 pounds of leaves produces 1 pound of air pollution? Most area waste collection companies offer a composting service which is much kinder to the environment and creates valuable mulch.
If you feel you must burn...........
Residents of Tyrone Township who wish to burn MUST obtain a burn permit from the township and adhere to Ordinance 44. Burning is NOT permitted if wind speeds exceed 8 mph or if dry conditions exist. Permits cost $5.00, are good for one calendar year, and may be obtained from the township, or:

Tyrone Township Master Plan Update
Tyrone Township recently updated its Master Plan. The prior update of the Master Plan was during 2003. Runyan Lake Inc. has reviewed the Master Plan update and believes the interests and concerns of Runyan Lake residents are being reasonably addressed. The Township Board adopted the new Master Plan during its February 19, 2013 township Board meeting. More information, including a copy of the Master Plan, can be found on Tyrone Township's website.
Outdoor Storage Ordinance Update
New Outdoor Storage Ordinance. Click here for a summary of the changes which may affect RLI members.
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. Increases will generally occur beginning with the January billing. The reason for these increases is due to an increase imposed by Livingston County to cover increased system maintenance costs and to continue to pay down the Livingston Regional Sewer System debt. Runyan Lake Inc. has reviewed the financial details causing these rate increases and believes the increases are consistent with the increases imposed by Livingston County to cover the increased operational costs of our sewer system. RLI remains concerned about the significant increases to the O&M rate.
Runyan Lake Inc. continues to work with the Livingston County Drain Commissioner and Tyrone Township to keep our sewer rates as low as possible. Questions from RLI members can be directed to Mark Meisel or contact the Tyrone Township Treasurer, Marna Bunting-Smith.
