To Our Township & Village Residents,

Like so many of you, we have spent the last several days and weeks learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19)and hdlN it is impacting our world.  For GrassLake,that means understanding how it affects our municipal staffs, our businessowners and their staff and our community at large, and then making whatever adjustments to our work and operations as deemed necessary. We have one simple objective that guides us; keeping everyone safe. This has been, and continues to be at the center of our conversations as we work through plans for this unprecedented, global threat. We are a small community and small communities bind together in times of uncertainty and crisis. If/when decisions are made that you don't understand or might not agree with, you can trust that these decisions are not being made lightly and there may be significant, personal impacts or information  that you are not aware
of going into these decisions. Again, some of these decisions are not easy to make.
