June 13, 2020 - Township Clean-Up Day

Save the Date:  Our next Township Clean-Up Day for Martiny Township residents is Saturday, June 13, 2020 9:00 AM until Noon or until dumpsters are full.  To understand blight control, we refer to the Mecosta County Zoning Ordinance Section 3.48 pages 113-115 with enforcement found in Article VIII Section 8.5 pages 150 and 151.

(Click Here for Mescota County Zoning Ordinance)

The purpose of blight control is to secure the public health, safety and welfare of the residents and property owners of Mecosta County.  The Zoning Ordinance enforces these regulations: abandoned vehicles, wrecked, dismantled, unusable and unregistered vehicles, outside parking and storage of junk, trash, rubbish, building materials, blighted structures (run-down, ruined or unsafe) and other blighting factors within the County. All building and zoning for Martiny Township is mandated by Mecosta County Building & Zoning and Martiny Township supports the Mecosta County Zoning and Enforcement.  To avoid receiving a Blight Notice from Mecosta County Building and Zoning Office:  keep your yard mowed, cleared of scrap materials and unusable vehicles as well as any other blight debris.  We need your help in keeping Martiny Township clean and beautiful for everyone to enjoy.
