IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING "STAY AT HOME" ORDER FROM THE GOVERNOR
Monday, March 23, 2020
Governor Whitmer has declared a statewide "Stay At Home" order, effective Tuesday, March 24th at 12:01 a.m., for a minimum of 3 weeks. Because of this, the Lyon Township Municipal Center will be closed.
Our three full-time elected officials (John Dolan, Michele Cash, and Patricia Carcone) will still be checking the mail box and drop box. Please click on their names for their individual email addresses.
The rest of the office staff will do their best to continue monitoring email but the level of service is unfortunately limited during this time, due to not being in the office regularly. Due to the closure, departments will be unable to receive and process applications. This includes the Building Department and Planning Department.
Lyon Township would like to thank you all for your understanding and patience as we attempt to handle things the best we possibly can. Please stay safe and, if possible, stay at home!
