A note from Peninsula Township Clerk Becky Chown…
Although the Peninsula Township offices are officially closed to the public at this time due to the coronavirus pandemic, we want you to know that staff are working remotely and that all services and functions continue.

The compactor station/recycling center on Devil’s Dive Road is open for business, and American Waste also continues to do curbside pickup.
Individuals who need specific services – such as a document notarized, to apply for a permit, to ask a question about taxes, to correct an address, or any other normal function – can email the staff person they need via the staff directory on the Peninsula Township website here.
If anyone in the township knows of any residents who do not have internet access, please let them know that township services continue and that they can reach out to Township Supervisor Rob Manigold for assistance at any time. His cell phone number is (231) 409-0862.
Parks Are Open – Remember Social Distancing
In addition, all our township parks and natural areas remain open. We hope you will have a chance to enjoy them in the coming days and weeks, albeit from a safe distance from one another.
Also, please be aware that the hand sanitizer and toilet paper have disappeared, so bring your own!
Got Hand Sanitizer? Call the Fire Department
The township extends a heartfelt thank you to Sam’s Club for donating much-needed wipes to our community police officer and fire department. We also want to put out a call for hand sanitizer, as the fire department is running low.
If you have any hand sanitizer that you can donate, please contact Fire Chief Fred Gilstorff at (231) 223-4443 or (231) 463-0330, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to Covid-19 concerns, the Peninsula Township Fire Department buildings are closed to the public except in the event of an emergency. If you need to do business with the fire department, do it by phone, if at all possible. Be assured that the fire department is still here for the community and will respond to ALL calls for emergencies. Stay up to date on Covid-19 issues on their Facebook page.
COVID-19 | CoronaVirus Info
By now you’ve received a great deal of information about COVID-19, and with the situation changing very rapidly at times, we recommend that you consider the following sources for your primary sources of information:
- Grand Traverse County Updates

- National Updates from the CDC
Each of these sites will point you to the most up-to-date and accurate information on the situation. As soon as something new is learned about the virus or the situation, it is added to the online guidance information referenced on these sites.
In the immortal words of Red Green, “We’re all in this together. Keep your stick on the ice.” Your township staff are doing just that, and we’ll continue to be available to address ongoing needs, as well as any questions or concerns. Thank you, and stay well.
