ASSESSOR AT YOUR DOOR?

Frankenlust Township is in the process of updating the information on our property record cards in an attempt to comply with the State of Michigan recommendation that all parcels are reviewed every five years. Either myself, or an assistant will visit your home. No one will ask to enter your home. You will be asked a few questions and a few reference pictures will be taken from the outside of your home. If no one is home we will leave a form for you to complete and return. The only people that may visit your home are myself, Paul Arnold, Dorothy Martin, or Neil Hammerbacher. We all have name tags with picture ID’s. If you have any questions, please address them to me or call the Township Office (989-686-5300).

Paul Arnold, Frankenlust Township Assessor : 989-662-6232

Frankenlust Township is about 26 square miles in size. Our boundaries are from Hotchkiss Road to Freeland Road and Eight Mile Road to Evergreen Drive. Frankenlust was originally established as a colony of German immigrants in 1848. The current township administration building’s ground breaking took place in 1976 and the dedication of the new building was October 23, 1977. The former building sits behind our current building near the creek.

 

Frankenlust is a friendly community with many diverse people. Much of Frankenlust Township is farm land with room for business as well as rural growth. We have a Nature Park on the southeast corner of Three Mile Road and Hotchkiss Road. There are 2 ponds with fish and a nice array of wild life which include deer, fox, rabbit, birds, raccoon, opossum, and muskrats.  Please let us know if you spot anything new walking about in the park.

 

There is also a Township Park near the administrative building. There are swings, merry-go-round, a teeter totter, springy animals, a slide, barbecue grills, picnic tables, a pavilion and a portable john during the warm months. Squaconning Creek runs along the north side of our Township Park and if you’re lucky you’ll see fish swimming through.

Bulk Water   

We offer bulk water on the south side of the Township Hall.  $1 will buy you 250 gallons of water. The money machine takes 1’s, 5’s, 10’s and 20’s.  It does not accept coins or give change.   You will need to have a 2” hose and a 2” female coupler to access the water supply.  We ask that you do not use containers or equipment that have been exposed to any chemicals.

 

Park Information

  

Our park, located next to the township hall, is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.  We have a pavilion, grills, picnic tables and a playground.  Outdoor bathrooms are available during the summer months.  Please, no pets allowed.
