Burning Permits  
Property owners who require a burning permit (for uses other than solely for food) must call the Fire Department or Township Offices prior to burning. Property owners will receive an authorization over the phone to burn for up to three consecutive days per request. Please call the Fire Department (616-784-5750) or the Township Offices (616-784-1262) for approval to burn.

For a more complete look at burning permits, see the Burning Ordinance 13-2 in PDF format.

Address Markers

Reflective address markers are available through the Township Fire Department. The green markers with white numbers can be ordered with a steel post, or without if you are installing the sign on an existing mailbox post. The signs can be picked up or arrangements for installation by a Fire Department volunteer may be requested. The cost for the marker is $15.00 (with or without the post).
