Membership Meeting proxy vote results
Proxy Ballot Voting Results -
A sincere thank you to those
of you who took the time to return your proxy ballots. The returns
meet our bylaws requirements for a quorum. One of the races was close,
so we took extra time and care to independently audit and verify the count
three times. The final audited results are:
– Milfoil is growing along the drop off zones around the lake, which is
typical for this time of year. Weed treatment notices will be posted
on Friday for a Monday (9/21) treatment. There are irrigation
restrictions and a 24 hour swimming restriction associated with the
treatment chemical Diquat. Please refer to the yellow notice, the annual
notice in your Spring Newsletter, or the Weed Treatment page of our website
for more information regarding restrictions associated with Diquat. A
treatment map can be found on the Weed Control page.
Lost & Found
– There are a large number of items on the Lost & Found website page.
Please let us know if the items reported to us as lost or found have been
claimed so we can remove them. Please note – there are a few recent
found item posts for a chair tube and life vests.
Boat Ramp Access
– Please refer to Page 3 of your Fall Newsletter for information regarding
boat ramp access for fall/winter watercraft removal.
Boat Ramp Access
There are no set hours for the boat ramp. For
an appointment, riparian Members please
call a trustee
with at least 24 hours advance notice.
Appointments cannot be made online.
In order to use the RLI
boat ramp, our boat ramp use policy, consistent with our Bylaws is:
Your RLI annual
dues for 2020 and all prior years must be paid for all lots owned;
Watercraft must be
titled to Runyan Lake riparian property owners or their renters; (State
and local law)
Your state of
Michigan watercraft registration must be current and displayed on the
watercraft; (State law)
A 2020 RLI boat
sticker must be present on the watercraft;
An RLI liability
waiver should be on file.
Watercraft and trailers must
be clean if coming from another water body to minimize risk of introducing
invasive species. Please require any marina or trailer service you utilize
to do the same. This is State law effective 2019! Please protect your lake!
Renters must request boat stickers through the
Boat Ramp Access Help
In addition to the RLI Trustees you may also contact the
following people to request access to the boat ramp:

New Boating Law Effective 2019

Sewer Rate Increase!
On 12/1/15 the Tyrone Township Board approved
increases to our quarterly sewer O&M fees for 2016 - 2021 of
approximately 3.5% annually. RLI remains
concerned about the large cost incurred by RLI Members while most of the
Tyrone Township sewer system remains unused. We will continue to work with the Drain
Commission and Township in an effort to control costs and require others to
pay their fair share.
Please contact Marcella Husted, Clerk, or
Jennifer Eden, Treasurer, @ 810-629-8631 with your questions, concerns, or

We now pay $935/yr for sewer service, an increase
of $695/yr (290%) since 2003! This does not
include the special assessment levied for the 2003 system upgrade, an additional
$300/yr for most, or the additional $650 assessment for the grinder pump!
Are we really paying our fair share or are we
subsidizing the rest of the undeveloped system? Ask your township
officials about the debt service charge we pay,
and who's sewer service we
are also paying for as a result! !
