Properly displayed house numbers allow emergency personnel to RESPOND MORE QUICKLY to an emergency!

Grand Haven Township Fire/Rescue and Robinson Township Fire Departments are encouraging all residents to properly display their address.

To assist the residents, the township has begun processing orders for HIGHLY REFLECTIVE GREEN address signs that can be displayed near the street. The signs may be displayed on a pre-existing mail box or on a post near the end of your driveway, visible from the street. If your mailbox does not sit on the same property as your house (i.e. across the street) or is clustered together with several other mailboxes, it is suggested that your new sign be installed on a post near the end of your driveway, visible from the street.

Flags deposited in the boxes will be collected and respectfully disposed of according to the U.S. Flag Code. Depending upon response, the Ottawa County box will be rotated on a monthly basis among County facilities. To start, it will be placed in the lobby of the Fillmore Administration Building near the boardroom.

Clean-up Our River Environment –

M 231 River Run 10K & 4 Miler

231 River Run – October 27, 2018

Register Now for the fourth annual run across M231 hosted by Ottawa County. The race is being renamed the 231 River Run. Less of the run will be on M231 and more will be on the Idema Explorer’s Trail and the Spoonville Trail. In fact, if you have run this event before, you’ll be pounding the pavement on the very paths you helped complete. We think THIS is pretty cool! Two distances will be available: 10k and 4 mile. As in previous years, proceeds from the run go toward paved trails and bike paths in the West Michigan area. (There are plenty of miles yet to be paved.)

For more information and to Register, Please go to :

    Credit Cards Have Costs:  Credit card companies charge businesses and government agencies a fee for each transaction paid for with a credit or debit card.  Although private businesses can increase the cost of their goods and services to recover the credit card fee, Robinson Township cannot.  This cost is reflected in the 3rd party fee.

    Payments made after 5:00 p.m. are processed  the next day which will effect the payment due.  On March 1st Robinson Township cannot accept the previous year’s tax payments. Payments must then be made at the Ottawa County Treasurer’s office at 12220 Fillmore Street, West Olive.  As of the 2018 summer bill postmarks are not accepted.
