Hamlin Township has worked hard over the years to establish and maintain our road system. However, some of our Township roads are deteriorating due to the increasing cost of road maintenance and the June 2008 flood.

Hamlin Township receives .7316 of a mill for operational purposes. That means that on a Taxable Value of $100,000, the Township receives $73.16 total from the property taxes you pay annually. We do our very best to be cost conscious and make wise decisions.

Each year, Hamlin Township complies a list of road problem areas from comments we receive throughout the year from our residents along with areas that the Township Board of Trustees identifies. The Mason County Road Commission provides rate quotes for items on our list, and then we have to look at what we can afford to repair, while staying within the budget.
