Ross Township does not have any ordinances relating to buoys. Many residents have contacted the Township saying they have been told that Ross Township is requiring removal of buoys on Gull Lake. This is not accurate. Buoys are regulated by the DNR. Questions should be routed to the District 7 DNR branch in Plainwell, by contacting:
DISTRICT 7 LAW ENFORCEMENT DIVISION
Plainwell Customer Service Center
Michigan Department of Natural Resources

Public Water? Public Sewer?
Please know that the Ross Township Board is the only authority that can approve public water and public sewer ordinances. Gull Lake Sewer & Water Authority does not have control over the Ross Township Board. Currently, Ross Township DOES have an Ordinance to connect to available public sewer, Ordinance No. 179, which is on the Ross Township website: http://www.rosstownshipmi.gov <https://ross-township.us20.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f6192cca7671e38b1bca16147&id=e4bc703224&e=9c3cf4e2a7> . This is specific to sewer that is already available, not new or proposed sewer expansion. There are NO ordinances regarding public water, which means there is no requirement for Ross Township residents to connect to public water. Please know that only the Township Board can enact ordinances in Ross Township. Where it concerns public water, Ross Township does not have a water tower to support this type of public water infrastructure. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Township to have your questions answered directly. Thank you to many informed citizens who are calling to share that a note should go out to correct this misinformation being spread in our community!
