The Mason County Road Commission

meeting:  December 23, 2020 (Wednesday).   William Schwass, Chairperson; Michael Ingison, Vice-Chairperson; Jeff Conklin, Member; Mary Samuel, Manager/Director. announces the launch of Snowpaths

The Mason County Road Commission (MCRC) is excited to announce the launch of Snowpaths, an online interactive map service that will keep you informed of the snow removal process on roads maintained by MCRC for the 2020-21 winter season.  The official launch date for Snowpaths is Monday November 9, 2020.

MCRC believes that providing Snowpaths will allow residents and public agencies to safely plan their commute by seeing current status of plowing operations.  Additionally, they will be able to isolate a specified location to view the status of that road during a snow and ice event, as well as a complete overview of the entire area to map out their commute.  Residents will also have access to customized alerts to stay informed of critical information during snow and ice events.

MCRC will evaluate Snowpaths at the end of the season for effectiveness, increased snow removal efficiency and public usage and feedback.  If MCRC continues Snowpaths in the future we plan on working with the software engineers to track the brine application processes and showing road closures that are either due to construction or major storm events.

For more information on Snowpaths please visit https://smartplanetsoftware.com/snowpaths/

To view the MCRC Snowpaths service, please visit this page.


Hamlin Lake:  Lowering of the lake level will begin the 4th Monday of October (October 26, 2020). The raising of the water level will start in the spring when there is no floating ice on the lake. 


The MI DNR Fisheries completed a fish survey on Hamlin Lake to determine the current status of the fishery. 
The 2019 survey is complete.  Click Here for the five-page report/results.  The Hamlin Lake Preservation Society will be hosting a meeting on May 6, 2020 beginning at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the results.  This meeting is open to the public.  The meeting will be held at the Hamlin Township Hall, 3775 N.

New Law Bans Certain Open Burning

Michigan is the last great Lakes state that allows rural residents to incinerate household waste in burn barrels. However, a new law rules out burning some materials.

In April, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley signed HB 4207, banning the uncontrolled burning of plastic, rubber, foam, chemically treated wood, textiles, electronics, chemicals and hazardous materials. The bill became Public Act 102 of 2012. Rural residents still can burn yard waste such as brush and leaves, and household waste such as cardboard and paper products.

September 6, 2022; New Playground Equipment at Wilson Hill Park in memory of Richard and Alison Puffer. Thank you to the Hamlin Lake Preservation Society, the volunteers and Lowe's for their donation.

Hamlin Township was established on February 28, 1861 by the Michigan State Legislatures. It is named after Hannibal Hamlin, Vice President from 1860 to 1864 under President Abraham Lincoln. The first settlement in Hamlin Township was made by Charley Mears, in 1858 in Section Two. The next settlers were Mr. and Mrs. Louis Sladick in Section 12. A railroad traveled from Ludington to the North Bayou, it was called the Dummy Line. When the first people settled in the Township, there were woods all around. As years went past and the population grew, more timber was cut and now there are very little woods standing. At one point, there were 84 farms in Hamlin Township. Hamlin Lake hotels and large resorts added much interest to Hamlin Township.

Today, Hamlin Township is the largest Residential Township in Mason County with a population of 3711 per the 2020 US Census. Hamlin Township provides some of the very best summer and winter recreational activities, with new and older homes blending for a delightful community with very little industry. Hamlin Township can truly boast "one-of-a-kind" status and is home to beautiful Hamlin Lake. Hamlin Lake, a man-made lake, is more than 12 miles long and 5,000 acres large that originated during the logging hey-day when lumbermen dammed the Big Sable River to make an enormous holding pond for trees that were felled upstream.
