Welcome to Yankee Springs Township
 Tax receipts are available on our website under property database. Receipts are mailed only upon request.     Until further notice, Yankee Springs Township Hall will not be open to the public due to Governor Whitmer's "Stay Home Order," EO 2020-92 in reference to Covid 19   

The Yankee Springs Township will be participating in a state wide Risk Limiting Audit of the Nov. 3, 2020 General Election.  Our Township has been directed to retrieve 15 ballots (total) across all of our voting Precincts.
The ballots will be reviewed for the vote for the office of President.  The results will be submitted to the County who will then submit the county results to the state.
This audit process is open to the public to view only.  Proper social distancing and masking will be maintained.
It is expected that the process will take between one and three hours.


The Property Taxes for Winter of 2020 are due on March 1, 2021.    The Yankee Springs Township Office will be open on March 1, 2021 for receipt of the taxes.


To protect  Public Health, the Yankee Springs Township Office is open by telephone (269-795-9091), email, voice mail or appointment only.  Please call before coming to the office.      Thank You.

Please be courteous at our recyling center.  Plastic bags are no longer accepted.  If it is full, please return at a later time with your materials.  Do Not leave anything outside the dumpsters--someone else has to clean up after you.  Please do not leave any trash in the recycle dumpsters.  If the load is contaminated with trash, the recycling center dumps the entire load.  Among the trash that has been left lately was a bag of dirty diapers.
The township budgets $30,000.00 for recycling each fiscal  year. 
The dumpsters are emptied on Monday and Friday. 
Thank you for your cooperation.
