Coronavirus updates

Due to the lifting of the Stay Home Order, Williamstown Township Hall will begin being open June 9th. In the meantime officers and staff are here to answer your call.  Due to the limited space, the doors will remain locked with the need to call for entry and a  maximum of two residents will be allowed in at a time.  With the rotation of staff, we highly recommend an appointment to insure your needs are being addressed.   For the safety of residents and staff, a mask will be required.

For up to date information, please visit https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus

Tax information can be found on the website along with permit applications.  There are two drop boxes for submitting permits and absentee voting request.  One is next to the front door and the other is the white box next to the postal box on the north drive. 

Hall rentals have been cancelled until inside gatherings are lifted by the Governor.    

The pavilion, rest rooms, playground equipment,  soccer and baseball fields will be closed for use at both the Township Park and Hall.  Use of the trails will continue to be permitted, we ask that you honor social distancing when encountering others at the Park.

The May Spring Clean Up has been rescheduled to September 12th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at this time.  We are hopeful that the event will not need to be cancelled.

You may wish to consider being put on the permanent absentee ballot list to insure voting for the upcoming elections.  You may do this by either emailing Clerk Mark Steinberg at [email protected]  or calling the office.

If you know of a resident who is in need of help, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Township.  If the service needed is beyond what we can handle, we will help get the message to the appropriate organization.

And beyond all else, please stay safe!

In The Spotlight

Beeman Road Activity

The Township has received many calls on the earth moving activity taking place on Beeman Rd.  A site plan was approved by the Township to create a flood plain compensating cut adjacent to the Red Cedar River as part of the Red Cedar Renaissance project taking place on Michigan Ave. near Frandor. The removed fill will remain on site and some will be placed in the Summit Cemetery expansion area to expand use of the Cemetery for a green burial area.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of May to resume planting of crops.  Plans are available at the Township Hall for review during regular business hours.  Please refrain from walking the site as this is private property.
