2016 Wind Turbine Project

Fairgrove Township has been contacted by NextEra Energy Company. It wants to begin the zoning review process for a third wind turbine project. Early indications are Fairgrove Township is slated for an additional 10 - 14 wind turbines to be located in the northeast corner of the township. The primary focus of this new project is in Almer & Ellington Townships. If this project moves forward, public hearings will be conducted and notices will be furnished to township residents for their participation in the review and siting process.

Winter 2016 Property Taxes

Winter property taxes must be made payable to the "Fairgrove Township Treasurer" and sent to the Fairgrove Township Treasurer, 5752 W. Deckerville Road, Fairgrove, MI 48733. Please include a copy of the tax bill with your payment. The Township Treasurer was at the new township hall (the former Chemical Bank building) on Wednesday, December 28, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to collect taxes. The Treasurer will also be at the new township hall on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to collect taxes.

Winter tax payments must be received by February 28, 2016! Tax payments received after February 28 (including payments bearing a postmark of February 28 or sooner) will be considered delinquent, and turned over to the Tuscola County Treasurer for collection. Additional interest and fees will then be assessed.

A tax receipt will be mailed when the taxes are paid. There is no need to include an envelope with your payment.

DO NOT put your tax payments in the night deposit box at the Township Hall!

Summer 2016 property taxes are paid to the Tuscola County Treasurer, NOT the Fairgrove Township Treasurer.
