Supervisor duties and authority
CONGRATULATIONS LEELANAU TOWNSHIP!
The Planning Commission & Steve Patmore received a special award from the Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council (NMEAC) Friday evening. The John Nelson Water Stewardship Award was in recognition of the Ordinance amendment to protect our wetlands and shoreline. This award is shared with all who participated in the Ordinance development (including expert consultants and public contributors), the Township Board (who unanimously approved the Ordinance), those who educated others on the importance of wetland protection, and the residents of Leelanau Township who demonstrated their Stewardship by voting to approve the Ordinance.
Congratulations to Ty Wessel for receiving the NMEAC award for Environmentalist of the Year: Public Service or Public Office!
Ty received this award for his leadership in education and adoption of the septic inspection Ordinance for Leelanau County. Michigan is the only State that doesn’t have a State mandated Ordinance for septic inspections upon sale of property. The County Ordinance eliminated the need for each Township within the County to develop and approve their own Ordinances to protect the watershed from failing septic systems.
Please note: All Township meetings are held in the Township Hall conference room and are open for public attendance.
