Cemetery Information Needed!!!!
The Township has undertaken a major project of reviewing and computerizing its Cemetery records. This is being done in an effort to improve and preserve the records for future generations.
As part of this project, we are looking for copies of Cemetery Deeds issued from October 1986 thru December 1997.
If you have a Cemetery Deed issued in this time frame, we would like to get a copy of it so that our records can be updated.
Please contact the Township Office at (269) 545-8143 or email the Township Clerk to make arrangements to provide copies. We appreciate your assistance with this project!!!
There is now an after-hours drop box at the Township Office, located on the exterior of the building for your convenience. Mail to the Township can be deposited in it when the office is closed.
Notary Services Available
The Township is now offering complimentary notary services during office hours listed on calendar or by special appointment. Contact the Township Clerk for details.
