The number one priority of Egelston Township is the health and safety of our citizens and employees to ensure that we are able to provide in the coming weeks. With Governor Whitmer’s Emergency Declaration it has become imperative that we as local officials plan for the potential community transmission of COVID-19 and take the necessary precautions to protect our residents and employees in an attempt to slow the spread in other words flatten the curve.

Effective March 16, 2020 through April 5, 2020 Egelston Township is limiting certain operations and access in order to minimize the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. The following operational changes will be in effect through April 5, 2020.

There is a drop box located outside the front entrance of the Township Hall; such business includes, but is not limited to, utility payments, absentee ballot applications, and building permits.

2. The Building Department will be available for inspections on all new construction projects. Arrangements can be made by calling the building department at 231-788-2308 ext. 13. Completed building permits may also be sent via email.
