360 Map Tours - Click here to view the tour!
The Greater Bridgman Area Chamber of Commerce and Growth Alliance has developed a great new tool for residents and visitors to find their way around the area. Taken by drone photography, this site gives you awesome aerial views of the Bridgman and Lake Township Area. Area businesses can contract with Classic Communications to have their business identified on the map. They offer different packages at various costs to provide information about your business including 360 panoramic views inside your business, links to Facebook or websites, and more! We believe this will be the preferred ways visitors learn about our area and all it has to offer. Contact Calli Berg at the CGA for more information at 269-564-4133.

Summer tax bills are due by September 14th at 5:00 to avoid interest or penalties. Payments must be received at our office by then, postmarks are not accepted. If you have not received your bill, please contact our office for a copy. Failing to receive the bill does not remove the responsibility to pay it! On-line payments and electronic checks are now available! This is a secure, electronic way to make tax and utility payments online with a fixed $3.00 per payment (up to $ 10,000). Previously tax payments required a 3% fee of the amount paid which was a lot on larger tax payment amounts. Simply click on the link on the right side of this page to the accessmygov website provided by our software company. You will be asked to create an account for the site with a user name and password (one time only). Log in and follow the prompts to make tax or utility payments. For electronic checks click on the payment type drop down arrow and select "electronic check". Enter your bank information and submit. It is very easy. Please allow 24 hours prior to the due date for processing. This site also provides valuable information about the history of tax and utility bill payments, assessment, and other valuable information. See the Treasurers page for more tax payment information.

Water/Sewer Rate Increase - The Township Board has approved a water/sewer rate increase effective beginning with the April billing cycles.

Lake Township Park - The pavement projects are being completed. Also the disc golf course renovations are underway. We are looking for hole sponsors to help offset the costs. For more information on the park or sponsoring a disc golf hole, please visit the Parks page or contact Bob Clark at the Township office.

Curbside Recycling has started in Lake Township! If you haven't signed up and received a container, it's not too late. Just contact the Township Hall and we'll get you up and running. There is no cost to residents and they pick up once every two weeks the same day as regular garbage is collected. Join hundreds of others committed to helping reduce landfill waste.

Water and sewer payments can now be made securely online! Please see the Water page for more information.
