Finance Department

The Finance Department is responsible for billing services that are provided by the Township and for collecting all revenues. The department collects current real and personal property tax bills. Although, the Building and Public Safety Departments collect fees for services provided, the finance department is responsible for the proper processing and recording of the receipts.

The Township currently bills for sewer, rubbish and water on a monthly basis.

Once a tax bill becomes delinquent, the resident is required to pay the tax bill at the Berrien County Treasurer's Office.

Citizen's Guide and Performance Dashboard

As part of our continuous efforts to keep our citizens informed on Township financial matters, we are pleased to provide you with a new tool to view our financial condition. The website includes drop downs that will allow you to look at general fund, the Enterprise Funds and the total Governmental Funds.

The Citizen’s Guide- Financial Summary will provide a more transparent understanding of our finances. The intent of the Citizen’s Guide is to provide a simple presentation of graphs which measure our most important financial elements.
