Norway Township has received a scrap tire cleanup grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ).  Beginning Tuesday, May 29, 2018 residents can drop off loose passenger tires at the Dickinson County Baler site located just south of the US-2 & 141 Junction behind the Thomas Theater (Cinema 8) during normal operating hours 8:00 to 3:00 Monday thru Friday and 9:00 to Noon on Saturday.  The grant will cover the cost of disposal of passenger tires.  No heavy truck, semi, tractor, solid tires or tires with rims.  If rims are attached, a $10 per tire fee will be charged to the individual.  A property tax receipt and picture ID are needed to verify residency, and a signature will be required to attest that the tires came from the address as stated.  The grant will run through November 1, 2018 or until the grant funds are depleted.


Office hours for summer tax collection will be on Wednesdays, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.  There is a drop box located on the door of the treasurer’s office for your convenience.   For more information, contact Kristen Lavalley, Treasurer, at 906-282-1082.
