Do I need a burn permit?
No, there is currently no permit required for burning yard waste items such as leaves and branches in Genoa Charter Township. Please use common sense when burning. Debris should be kept in small piles and should not be left unattended. Burning should take place during daylight hours with low wind conditions.
Every year the Township receives complaints about the burning of yard waste. Alternatives to burning exist. Yard waste collections take place at the Township Hall, 2911 Dorr Road, several times throughout the year. Please look for drop-off dates in the quarterly newsletter. Backyard composting is another environmentally friendly option.
Who is responsible for the maintenance of my road?
Public roads in Genoa Township are maintained by the Livingston County Road Commission at (517) 546-4250. Private roads are maintained by the private property owners.
We have a private road that we want to have paved/repaved/other road improvements. What can we do?
Please refer to the Special Assessment District (SAD) for Road Improvements guide located to the right for information on having the Township setup an assessment district for the desired road improvements.
When do we chloride the Township gravel roads?
