Dredge Hole Maps

Houghton Lake contains a number of "Dredge Holes" located near the shore line in numerous places. These "holes" date back to the 1950s and there have been several tragic accidents over the years. Through the efforts of a local citizens group with the cooperation of  Roscommon County a map has been developed to identify these potentially dangerous areas. Thus far fifty one holes have been identified. A map is available at the township hall  showing the GPS coordinates along with the approximate area and depth of each hole. There is no charge for the map. If you are staying at one of the many resorts in the township they should have a copy of the map for your review.

Nixle

Roscommon County Emergency Management has begun utilizing a new service to access important, valuable community information when you need it, using the latest technology.

Our agency will create and publish messages through the Nixle Community Information Service. Nixle will then deliver this information to you instantly via text, email and/or web message. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site at www.nixle.com.

Example messages may include Weather warnings, missing children as well as other relevant safety and community information.

The service is secure, reliable and easy for our group to use. YOU decide what information you want and whether you want it sent to your cell phone, email, or just simply over the web.

Please register now at the company’s main web site: www.nixle.com. There you can also access their Frequently Asked Questions.

HOW TO APPLY FOR A BURN PERMIT

Getting a burn permit for your area has never been easier.  Go to
www.michigan.gov/burnpermit on the internet and use the "interactive map" to find the burn conditions in your area.  If "YES" appears in the Burning Permits Issued column, you are authorized to burn today.  This serves as your burn permit.  You don't need to print anything.  Camp fires do not require a permit.

You can also call 1-866-922-2876 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. seven days a week.  After listening to the pre-recorded message, you can stay on the line and a representative will speak with you.

You can also call the township offices Monday thru Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and we can assist you in getting the information.

It is important to find out if burning is permitted each day, it could prevent possible mishaps and/or fines.
