Arbutus Lake No. 5 Park Arbutus Lake No. 5 Park will be closed for the 2023 summer season. While this is disappointing, there are great things to come. During the summer, utilizing a Michigan DNR Trust Fund grant award and township funding, the park will receive a bathhouse, fishing pier, kayak launch, renovated and shortened seawall, ADA lake accessibility, new fencing, footbridge, and a few additional parking spaces. Here's to good things to come! Report a Road Problem Have you noticed a road issue? Head to the Grand Traverse County Road Commission's website and find the helpful link "Report a Problem". Read More Flock Safety Cameras At the March 13, 2023 regular township board meeting, the Township Board approved the installation of seven Flock Safety Cameras to be located throughout the township. East Bay Township joins Peninsula and Garfield Township in this initiative which was brought forward by the Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office as a method to aid detectives and deputies in investigations of crimes and open cases, such as hit and runs or missing persons. The board approved a five-year contract with a cancellation clause and requested annual reports from the GTSO on the effectiveness of this technology in helping to solve crimes. The technology is not used for deputy responsibilities and initiatives such as speed and seat belt violations. To learn more about the Flock system, watch the township board meeting at tacm.tv, beginning at 21:20. Do you know how to be in the know? It's easy!
