Grattan Township Residents, Patrons and Employees:

To comply with the MDHHS orders and further protect staff, Grattan Township has made the decision to

suspend in-person transactions at the Township offices from November 18, 2020- December 17, 2020.

The Township offices are closed for the Holidays from December 21, 2020- January 3 rd , 2021.

Meetings scheduled between November 17, 2020 and December 8, 2020 will either be cancelled or take

place via teleconference. Please reference the Township door notices and website for more information

on meetings.

The Township will continue to provide all services in a no-contact manner beginning November 18, 2020.

The lobby doors will be open for dropping off larger scale items, such as building plans, though we ask

that all other transactions be completed by utilizing the drop box located to the right of the front door,

postal mail or email. If a receipt is needed for you records, please note the request with your payment

receipt and we will gladly mail it to you.

Staff will check the drop box frequently throughout the day, but please expect a minimum of 2 business

days to complete your requests as staff may be working staggered shifts.

The township will not begin scheduling Hall rentals until after January 7, 2021.

Administrative staff will continue to actively monitor, plan and communicate about this situation in the

upcoming days and weeks. Although we are not a heavily populated community, we want all who utilizes

our services to know that we made these decisions with the health, safety, and welfare of our employees

in mind. Providing basic municipal services is still our foremost goal, but we must act not to contribute to

the community spread.
