The burn ban was lifted Saturday, July 23, 2016.  Please burn safely.




Tyrone Township, first settled in 1834, is located in the northeastern-most corner of Livingston County, Michigan.  Historically, a major Indian trail called the Shiawassee Trail crossed through Tyrone Township as a connection between Detroit and the Shiawassee County community of Shiawasseetown.  Today, the township is a picturesque rural community with rolling hills blended with lakes, golf courses and open spaces.  The census population of Tyrone Township for 2010 was 10,020 citizens.

Road-Kill Disposal

Residents often call the township asking what can be done with road kill.  The township, the road commission, and the DNR do not provide such a service.  The DNR recommends the following if residents encounter road-killed animals on or near their property:  1) Bag up the carcass and leave it with their trash for pick-up, 2) Move the carcass to an area where decomposition can take care of it (ditch, woods, buried underground, etc.), or 3) Hire a waste control company to remove the carcass. 

Property Fraud Alert Program

When property fraud happens it is not generally detected until years later and trying to track down the offenders is a very difficult task because they are long gone. Livingston County's Register of Deeds provides a free service to all land owners in Livingston County. The service, Property Fraud Alert (PFA) notifies you via email or phone number when a document is recorded at the Register of Deeds with your name on it. To participate in this free service go to the Register of Deeds webpage and click on the "Property Fraud Alert" link to sign up.

Fire Protection- ISO Rating

Tyrone Township's ISO (Insurance Service Organization) Public Protection Classifications rating was updated in 2012.  These ratings may provide a significant reduction in your homeowner's insurance premium.  We encourage you to contact your insurance company to see if this will affect you!  To read more about the ISO rating, click here.  To see a map of the classifications, click here.
 

Incorrect Vehicle Registrations

It has come to our attention that a large number of vehicle registrations are improperly assigned to Genesee County, NOT Livingston.  This means the township is losing 42 cents on every dollar that you pay for your license plates to Genesee County instead of being available to fix our roads.  Please check your vehicle registration to make sure it is properly assigned to Livingston County.  If it is incorrect, call the Secretary of State's office at 888-767-6424 or email richmondd1@mi.gov to keep your money in your county.
 

Flag Disposal

The Tyrone Township hall does NOT accept worn flags for disposal.  Flag disposal bins are located at following:

•  City of Fenton Police Department
•  City of Fenton Fire Department
•  The Hartland Area Fire Station
•  The Loose Senior Center


Road Complaints

MDOT - Motorists may file claims for vehicle damage caused by potholes, but conditions apply. First, the pothole must be located on a state trunkline, which is a highway with an M-, I-, or U.S.- prefix, i.e., M-59, M-36, US-23, I-96.  MDOT only has jurisdiction over state trunklines.  Additionally, to prove a highway-defect claim, state law requires a motorist to show that the road agency failed to maintain the highway in reasonable repair.  The motorist must show that MDOT knew of the condition and had an opportunity to repair it, or that the condition exists for more than 30 days.  Few claims are eligible for payment because potholes develop quickly.  The claim form and instructions are available on MDOT's website.

LIVINGSTON COUNTY ROAD COMMISSION - If your complaint is regarding township/county roads, please contact Livingston County Road Commission.  Please understand that the road commission is aware of the rough conditions of our roads and are doing what they can.  The Road Commission may be reached at 517-546-4250.
 

Drug Drop-off Program

The Big Red Barrel Program is a safe way to dispose unused medications at various locations.  For more information please visit the Livingston County Community Alliance website.
