UPDATE REGARDING SPECIAL ASSESSMENT DISTRICT:
At the regular Tawas Township Meeting held on 11/12/18 at 6pm, the Board unanimously voted to establish the Special Assessment District and Tax Roll for the Collection and Disposal of Garbage and Rubbish with the initial contract set for a period of two years. The Assessment will be added to the 2019 Winter Tax bill and the collection of garbage/rubbish will be effective 1/1/2020. This will give our residents time to run out their current contracts and pro-rate through the end of 2019. Ninety gallon containers will be provided by Sunrise Disposal and the collection day will be Wednesday. One bulk item is allowed per month. Please note that hazardous items and those containing Freon are not accepted. Recycling is not a part of this contract but there is a county wide committee that has been established to address this issue.
