Calling all Voters
Armada Township Clerk is looking for people to work elections in the township. It’s a paid job and we provide donuts, lunch and dinner on Election Day. If you have basic computer skills, an interest in the process of government, a few days a year to help out  and a  willingness to learn new things - you could be on the team!

If you’ve ever thought you might enjoy being involved, now’s the time to find out. We’re having an informational election inspector orientation meeting to go over the process, responsibilities and training. If you’re still interested afterward, you can apply for the job and sign up for training. Election Inspector Orientation Meeting is December 11 at 10 a.m. Armada Township Hall. Contact Deputy Clerk Sam Boelke at 586.784.5200 or by e-mail at deputyclerk@armadatwp.org to make a reservation or with any questions.

Large Item Disposal Day at Transfer Site
Armada Township Transfer Site Director Wayne Lobeck designated Saturday, October 10th as large item disposal day at the transfer site on Armada Ridge Road. In addition to the usual accepted items such as household waste, dry, open paint cans, vacuums and electronics, residents can also drop off items such as mattresses, couches, recliners, large screen TVs. Items never accepted include: yard waste, building materials, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, air conditioners, liquid paint, hazardous materials and chemicals, firearm ammunitions or batteries. For more information, check out our Waste and Recycling Information or contact Wayne Lobeck by e-mail at wrlobeck@att.net.

Last Day to Register for Upcoming November Election is October 5
Michigan Election Law requires a resident to have lived in their community for 30 days before they can vote in an election, so October 5th is the last day to register and vote in Armada Township in the November election. If you've recently moved and haven't gotten around to changing your address yet, this reminder is for you.

If you're not sure you're registered, or if you want to read the ballot beforehand, look yourself up in the Michigan Voter Information Center. This Web-site, which is part of the Secretary of State of Michigan Web-site, can answer many questions regarding elections and how to participate.

New Financial Information Posted to Web-site
Armada Township Web-site now displays township financial information detailing where its revenues come from and where they go. There is also a updated searchable tax and assessing information page  making that process much easier to follow. And there is a new option to search through the list of sold properties in the township. There is more dashboard information that will be added in September once the auditor's report is accepted by the board and auditor's send the information on to the state treasury. Check back near the end of September for that.

Online Tax Payments Now Available
Treasurer Peg Smith is now accepting tax payments online. Taypayers must first create an account on the site. Once that is done, they will be able to log in, see the tax information for all properties they own and click on the 'pay now' link to pay online. For more information, or with any questions, contact Peg at 586.784.5200.
