Yes! It’s happening. This is a powerful incentive to clean out the garage, the storage shed, closets, wherever it is you store all that stuff you thought you might need again and never have. PAC Sanitation, Inc. will be picking up household materials starting at 7:00 a.m.Saturday May 30th.
Please have your trash ready at the end of your driveway near the road. One pickup load per household is permitted.
As usual, there are some things that will not be picked up: brush, leaves, grass clippings, batteries, tires, cement, oil, paint, appliances with Freon, and any hazardous waste. Lumber must be cut in 3-foot lengths.
If you have any problems or questions pertaining to trash day cleanup, please call Munro Township Supervisor Charles Antkoviak at (231) 627-7232.
Rising Waters in Northern Michigan:
A Webinar for Shoreline Property Owners 
Thursday, May 14, 2020
11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

     In May of 2019, new high water level records were set on Lakes Erie and Superior. In 2020 Lakes Michigan and Huron have exceeded monthly mean water levels. While water level fluctuations are considered vital to the health and function of the Great Lakes ecosystem, they can adversely impact those who live on or use the Great Lakes.
     High waters cause erosion, flooding, and can damage structures along the shoreline. Rising waters are also causing inland flooding, resulting in failing septic systems and drainfields, contaminated drinking water wells, and releases of chemicals or fuels from flooded basements and garages into our waters.
     Learn about rising water levels from experts at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, and Charlevoix, Cheboygan, and Emmet County Office of Emergency Management.

     The webinar is sponsored by the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council. There is no charge to attend the webinar.
     Topics to be covered include the current status and predictions for Great Lakes water levels, permitting, shoreline protection best management practices, inland flooding concerns, septics, drinking water wells, and more.
