East Bay Charter Township is located in the northwest corner of the Lower Peninsula nestled among many inland lakes inside Grand Traverse County. Our township is a mix of rolling farmland, forests and Lake Michigan beach front. East Bay is an exciting and growing community with a unique blend of commercial and residential development.
TELEPHONE SCAM – ATTENTION RESIDENTS:
East Bay Township wants to bring to your attention that there have been reports of telephone scams in the area involving property taxes. The scam involves a caller claiming to work for a company called Diversified Consultants, calling to verify your personal information, including your social security number, and is attempting to collect delinquent property taxes. Please do not give them any personal information and contact police authorities at their non-emergency number (231) 922-4550.
Please note that if you are delinquent on your taxes you would be contacted directly by East Bay Township or Grand Traverse County, not by an outside firm, and we would not ask for personal information— such as your social security number.
