TOWNSHIP OFFICES AND COVID-19
Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order does not impact essential government services, which for Grand Haven Charter Township means that the following employees will continue to work:
Public Works staff to the extent that they are working within the areas of water distribution, sanitary sewer collection, cemetery burials and – pursuant to the Executive Order – maintaining Parks to allow for outdoor recreation
Election workers preparing for the upcoming May School elections
The Township Administrative Building will not be open. Specifically, it is noted that the following departments will be closed until May 18th:
Building (construction inspections are postponed until Friday, May 18th)
Finance (except for minimal activities to maintain basic operations)
Zoning and Ordinance Enforcement
Human Resources (except for minimal activities to maintain basic operations)
For residents that want to complete yardwork during the Executive Stay-at-Home order, the Township leaf drop-off site will be opened early beginning on Thursday, March 26th. The drop-off site is located behind the DPW Building at 13300 168th Avenue. The drop-off is only meant for leaves, grass and similar yard waste. There is no dumping of wood, limbs or brush allowed.
