DO YOU HAVE INVASIVE PLANTS IN YOUR YARD?

 

Brandon Township is a member of the Oakland County Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area. The OC CISMA received grant funding in 2015 to treat Phragmites, swallow wort and knotweed on public and private property.  Grant funding in 2018 will be used primarily for a CISMA coordinator and mapping invasive plants throughout Oakland County. Phragmites are prevalent in Brandon Township.  Please see the flyer on Small Scale Phragmites Control for more information Front | Back.

Asian Bittersweet is another invasive plant found in Brandon Township. Information on identification and treatment of Asian (Oriental) Bittersweet can be found on the Asian Bittersweet brochure.  Click here for more information    

ASSESSING UPDATE

Brandon Township’s Assessing Department is conducting a review of the assessment data. The process begins by reviewing aerial photography, property photos and assessment records. In order to maintain accuracy, the next step in the process is an on-site property visit. During the visit, the assessing department will announce their presence, take photographs, update sketches and spot check measurements if needed. No attempt will be made to enter your residence.

    Why are our ROADS not maintained like they used to be?  Refer to:  A Guide to Michigan's Road & Road Funding Crisis.

     

    SPEED LIMITS ON TOWNSHIP ROADS

    HB 4423 has been signed into law. It allows speed limits on gravel roads to be set at 45 miles per hour in a county such as Oakland that has a population of one million or more. Speed limits can be posted lower than 45 mph if a speed study supports the reduction. Municipalities will be responsible for paying for the required signage.
