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.

Lake Township Park - The park is closed for the season. Weather permitting we may open it on certain days. We plan to continue renovations of the disc golf course over the winter and spring. We are looking for hole sponsors to offset some of 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.

Winter Tax Bills are due by February 14th, 2018 at 5:00 to avoid interest or penalties. Payments must be received at our office by then, postmarks are not accepted. Bills will be sent out in early December. 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! Electronic checks are now available! This is a secure, electronic way to make tax and utility payments on line with a fixed $ 3.00 per payment (up to $ 10,000). 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.

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.
