East Bay Charter Township is pleased to announce that its Short-term Rental registration web portal is now up and running. You may access the portal through the following web address:  https://secure.hostcompliance.com/township-of-east-bay-mi/permit-registration
 

The Short-term Rental registration application is $450 per year.  Please be aware that operating a short-term rental may result in the loss of your homestead exemption, contact the Township Assessor, at (231) 947-8647, for more information. 

****Please DO NOT call the Health Department seeking a certification. They should be able to provide a copy of your permit, though. You will also need an inspection or a copy of an inspection approval within the last three (3) years from a septic tank firm.  For holding tanks, a copy of your pump records from the last 12 months is also required. Thank you. ****

Seeking a Community Garden Volunteer Champion
 
Concept plans have been prepared, initial funding has been secured, and multiple partnerships have been established. Now, the East Bay Township Health Planning/Community Garden Committee is seeking an enterprising and energetic individual who is interested in becoming the Volunteer Champion for planned community garden at the Township Offices. This unpaid, but very appreciated individual will work with the committee; partners like 4-H, the library, SEEDS, MSU Extension, the Senior Center Network, and area schools; as well as other individuals, to move the planned community garden forward from concept to reality.   
 
If you think this volunteer position sounds like a fun challenge or have more questions, please feel free to contact Township Planner, Rick Brown at 231-947-8681 or at rbrown@eastbaytwp.org. East Bay Township residency is NOT required, but previous  organizational experience, a passion for working with others, and a desire to help make this gardening dream come true, are strong attributes being sought.  
 
We look forward to hearing from potential candidates!
