Welcome to

Tyrone Township



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.  (More historical information may be found HERE.)

Tyrone Township welcomes and encourages resident involvement in the community. Residents may serve on appointed boards or commissions within the township and have the opportunity to make decisions on important public issues. Some of these opportunities to serve the community are Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Board of Review.

April 8, 2014


BURN BAN INFORMATION

UPDATE 4/17/14:
 
The burn ban is still in effect today, but may be lifted on Friday.  Please call the Hartland Fire Dept. at 810-632-7676.  A recorded message will let you know if the ban has been lifted for Livingston County.

April 8, 2014 - An open burning ban is in effect for Livingston County.  According to the Hartland Deerfield Fire Authority Fire Marshall Michael Bernardin, the ground has not thawed, and despite the wet weather, plants remain brown and dormant making them susceptible to fire.  Bernardin expects the ban to remain in effect until vegetation greens up, which could take two weeks or more.

EARLY APRIL FOOLS?

The Tri-County Times published an article in their Wednesday, March 12, 2014 edition regarding the township's budget.  The article states the Supervisor, Clerk, and Treasurer received a raise and will "earn $60,380 annually." 

As much as the officials would like that raise, the correct salary is $30,380 annually.

UGH.


POTHOLES!   

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 this time of year and are doing what they can.  The Road Commission may be reached at 517-546-4250.

Registrations


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.

Fire Protection


ISO Ratings


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!

Flag Disposal



FLAG DISPOSAL

The Tyrone Township hall is no longer accepting worn flags for disposal, due to the high volume received. 

The Hartland Area Fire Station (3205 Hartland Rd., Hartland, MI 48353) has a "Worn Flag Disposal" bin in the front of the building for drop-offs. 

The Loose Senior Center (707 N. Bridge St., Linden, MI 48451) also accepts retired flags.
