Tyrone Township, first settled in 1834, is located in the northeastern-most corner of Livingston County, Michigan. Historically, a major Indian trail called the Shiawassee Trail crossed through Tyrone Township as a connection between Detroit and the Shiawassee County community of Shiawasseetown.  Today, the township is a picturesque rural community with rolling hills blended with lakes, golf courses and open spaces. The census population of Tyrone Township for 2010 was 10,020 citizens.

Food Collection Year-Round

Our annual Christmas food collections have been so successful, thanks to the generosity of our residents, that we've decided to try to be a year-round collection site for Gleaners Food Bank and the Pet Pantry. Nonperishable food items for humans AND pets may be donated at the township hall. Collection bins are located in the front lobby. Donations are greatly appreciated and help feed hungry people and pets. The Pet Pantry also accepts pet-related items.

REAL-ID compliant licenses

Michigan residents now have the option to apply for the REAL-ID-compliant driver's license or ID card at Secretary of State offices.  Starting October 1, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security will require REAL-ID licenses or passports to board domestic flights or to enter federal buildings.  Click here for more information. 

Burn Permits

Residents of Tyrone Township wishing to burn MUST obtain a burn permit from the township.  Permits cost $5.00, are good for one calendar year, and may be obtained at the township hall or by mail.  Click here for more information.  Burning is NOT permitted if wind speeds exceed 8 mph or if dry conditions exist.

Supervisor Mike Cunningham and Fenton City Fire Chief Bob Cairnduff teamed to make a couple of short videos about open burning in Tyrone Township: 
burn permits and safe burning. 

Jayne Hill Sub Recycling & Yard Waste Schedule

For residents who live in the Jayne Hill Subdivision, the recycling and yard waste schedule can be found here.  If you are experiencing any problems, please call Gary Hicks at 810-768-2218.  

Gravel Pit Update

Regarding the gravel pit on Denton Road: Fenton Sand & Gravel is now Mid Michigan Crushing and Recycling (MMCR). MMCR is permitted to do extraction at the pit, but no recycling or crushing.  The sign stating "crushing & recycling" is posted so trucks coming to get sand know where to go. We've also had calls from concerned residents about the trucks using Denton Hill Rd.  Denton Hill Rd. is a designated truck route and trucks have the right to use it. As such, the township and the road commission cannot force the trucks to use alternate routes.  We appreciate your understanding, but if you have questions, please contact Supervisor Mike Cunningham at 810-629-8631.

Road Complaints

MDOT - Motorists may file claims for vehicle damage caused by potholes, but conditions apply. First, the pothole must be located on a state trunkline, which is a highway with an M-, I-, or U.S.- prefix, i.e., M-59, M-36, US-23, I-96.  MDOT only has jurisdiction over state trunklines.  Additionally, to prove a highway-defect claim, state law requires a motorist to show that the road agency failed to maintain the highway in reasonable repair.  The motorist must show that MDOT knew of the condition and had an opportunity to repair it, or that the condition exists for more than 30 days.  Few claims are eligible for payment because potholes develop quickly.  The claim form and instructions are available on MDOT's website.

LIVINGSTON COUNTY ROAD COMMISSION - If your complaint is regarding township/county roads, please contact Livingston County Road Commission.  Please understand that the road commission is aware of the rough conditions of our roads and are doing what they can.  The Road Commission may be reached at 517-546-4250.

Road-Kill Disposal

Residents often call the township asking what can be done with road kill.  The township, the road commission, and the DNR do not provide such a service.  The DNR recommends the following if residents encounter road-killed animals on or near their property:  1) Bag up the carcass and leave it with their trash for pick-up, 2) Move the carcass to an area where decomposition can take care of it (ditch, woods, buried underground, etc.), or 3) Hire a waste control company to remove the carcass.

Property Fraud Alert Program

When property fraud happens it is not generally detected until years later and trying to track down the offenders is a very difficult task because they are long gone. Livingston County's Register of Deeds provides a free service to all land owners in Livingston County. The service, Property Fraud Alert (PFA) notifies you via email or phone number when a document is recorded at the Register of Deeds with your name on it. To participate in this free service go to the Register of Deeds webpage and click on the "Property Fraud Alert" link to sign up.

Fire Protection- ISO Rating

Tyrone Township's ISO (Insurance Service Organization) Public Protection Classifications rating was updated in 2012.  These ratings may provide a significant reduction in your homeowner's insurance premium.  We encourage you to contact your insurance company to see if this will affect you!  To read more about the ISO rating, click here.  To see a map of the classifications, click here.

Incorrect Vehicle Registrations

It has come to our attention that a large number of vehicle registrations are improperly assigned to Genesee County, NOT Livingston.  This means the township is losing 42 cents on every dollar that you pay for your license plates to Genesee County instead of being available to fix our roads.  Please check your vehicle registration to make sure it is properly assigned to Livingston County when renewing plates at the Secretary of State or online.  If it is incorrect, call the Secretary of State's office at 888-767-6424 and keep your money in your county.

Flag Disposal

The Tyrone Township hall does NOT accept worn flags for disposal.  Flag disposal bins are located at following:

•  City of Fenton Police Department
•  City of Fenton Fire Department
•  The Hartland Area Fire Station
•  The Loose Senior Center

Drug Drop-off Program

The Big Red Barrel Program is a safe way to dispose unused medications at various locations.  For more information please visit the Livingston County Community Alliance website.
