Peninsula Township sent out a note this week that all indoor township meetings will be canceled through December 8.

The notice comes after a Michigan Department of Health and Human Services order with new restrictions meant to help flatten the Covid-19 curve went into effect yesterday, Wednesday, Nov. 18. The restrictions are scheduled to last three weeks.

The order specifies that restaurants must halt dine-in services, movie theaters must close again (after being open for only about a month), high schools and colleges must shift to remote learning, and social gatherings should be limited to two households. Read more about the order, including what’s open and what’s closed, here.

While township meetings may be held virtually – according to the notice from the Michigan Township Association – Peninsula Township clerk Becky Chown says they are not planning on holding virual meetings at this time.

Peninsula Township offices are open, however, and staff will be at the office during normal business hours.

  • Monday, 7:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

If you need to see staff, they ask that you schedule an appointment by calling (231) 223-7322. You may also call or email specific staff members – check out the staff directory here.

Note: For all property tax-related inquiries, contact the treasurer’s office. For election and cemetery inquiries, contact the clerk’s office.

If you do not need to see a staff member and have something to drop off, feel free to use the after-hours drop box in front of the Township offices, 13235 Center Road.
