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.

Master Plan Visioning Sessions

MASTER PLAN VISIONING SESSIONS

Tentatively scheduled and may be subject to change:
Thursday, November 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Saturday, November 12 @ 9:00 am- 11:00 am


The Township is preparing a new Master Plan and wants to hear from you!  In addition to the community survey and future public hearings, the Township is holding several community visioning sessions. The community visioning sessions will be held at the Tyrone Township Hall, 8420 Runyan Lake Road, Fenton, MI.  

The purpose of the community visioning sessions is to share some information that has been collected in the master planning process and, more importantly, to gather additional input for the Township’s citizens to help create a vision for the Township’s future.  

The first group of sessions held in September focused on topics like population and community character, housing, economics, natural environment, transportation, and community facilities and public services.

A second group of community visioning sessions is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, November 10th and Saturday November 12th.

Members of the public are also encouraged to visit the Master Plan website, which includes draft documents and materials.  It also has an opportunity to submit comments and pictures for inclusion in the Master Plan.

Wildlife Animals

One of the great things about our community is the abundance of wildlife, but sometimes wild animals need help and residents find themselves searching for answers.  Below are places who know animals and may be able to offer help or advice year-round.

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.

Disposal of Unused Medications

Several places offer locations to safely dispose unused medications. Check locations in Livingston County or in Genesee County.

Recycling & Garbage



 Information on recycling and garbage collection services are
located here.

 

Fire Protection- ISO Rating

Tyrone Township's ISO (Insurance Service Organization) Public Protection Classifications rating was updated this year. Effective Nov. 1, 2018, the area serviced by the City of Fenton Fire Department (previously ISO 6) has been upgraded to ISO 5. 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 an updated 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 when renewing plates at the Secretary of State or online. If it is incorrect, call the Secretary of State's office at 888-767-6424 and keep your money in your county.

Road Complaints

Livingston County owns and maintains roads within the township unless private. Please understand they do the best they can on the budget they have. If you have complaints regarding the conditions of the roads, potholes, or mailboxes, please call the Livingston County Road Commission directly at 517-546-4250. More information about the Road Commission can be found here.  

The Road Commission is not responsible for damaged mailboxes from snow thrown from trucks. However, if damage has occurred from direct contact with a road commission snow removal equipment, a supervisor will assess the situation.  

The Road Commission does not pick up or dispose of animal carcasses on the roadways. 

Safety Program

Smart911 is a free service that allows residents to create a safety profile for their entire household. Residents customize their profile and share any information they want Central Dispatch and response teams to have in the event of an emergency. All information is private and secure, and it is seen only when the resident dials 911. Sign up at www.smart911.com.

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.
