Lake Township Hears Objections to Revoking Boat Hoist Restrictions. Vote Postponed


Lake Township, Caseville, Michigan – January 25th. – The township board was inundated by a high turnout during a rare mid-winter Planning Board session.  The motion of revoking the ordinances restricting boat hoists within beach easements was met by opposition from local residents and seasonal owners. The ordinance, enacted in 2007, prevents lake easements from becoming residential marinas along the beach. The current zoning ordinance limits residents to two hoists per 25 foot of easement shoreline.

The board postponed a vote and further discussion until February 22nd.  A date, coincidently, that falls during mid-winter break for most schools. Turnout may be much higher by seasonal residents.

Lake Township residents are still in the dark as to why the Lake Township board wants to kill this successful ordinance.
