WATER DEPARTMENT SURVEY

Receiving some inquiries about changing our water billing schedule, the Birch Run Township Water Department recently sent a survey along with water bills asking water customers to cast their vote on whether water billings should remain quarterly or switch to monthly.  Survey results are as follows:

56% of water customers responded! - Thank You!

          88% of customers wish to stay quarterly

          9% of customers wish to switch to monthly

          3% of customers had no preference 

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

 

Birch Run Township celebrated its 169th Birthday in April of 2022!  


Birch Run Township was first organized in 1853 and held it's first Annual Meeting of the Electors on April 4, 1853.  At that meeting Joseph Matheson was elected the first supervisor with 18 votes to 17 for Proctor Williams (at whose house the initial election was held); Calvin Silvernail was elected the first clerk with 21 votes to 14 for Elisha Marvin; Hirum Brown was elected treasurer with 19 votes to 16 votes for Elisha Marvin.  The town was named after it's creek, which runs thru a large birch tree area.  In 1863, the town was renamed Deer Lick and remained so until 1868 when it reverted back to Birch Run.
