Hayes Township Planning Commission Meeting 
Due to the COVID-19 situation the April 8th Hayes Township Planning Commission Meeting is CANCELLED. We will reschedule the meeting when COVID-19 situation stabilizes.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, and the Federal and State Declarations of Emergency, Waste Management is temporarily suspending the performance of the following services beginning April 1, 2020.  These services are deemed non-essential during this period of emergency.
Bulk Collection – furniture, carpet, mattresses, appliances, etc.
Spring and Bulk clean-ups
Yard waste Collection – grass clippings, brush, tree limbs, etc.

The April 14, 2020 Hayes Township Board workshop, is a non-essential meeting, and has been cancelled.

Hayes Township Municipal Complex will be closed until Monday April 13, 2020.  

Due to the “stay home, stay safe” executive order, most burn permits are suspended across the state. Burning yard debris is the top cause of wildfires in Michigan.   Suspending burn permits reduces the potential for wildfires, which will limit the risk of exposing first responders to coronavirus and make sure trained personnel and equipment are available to assist with COVID-19 response as needed.  Per the DNR website, open debris burning is not permitted anywhere within Clare County at this time,

Public officials will be returning calls to messages left on our phones as well as returning emails
