Assessment Public Hearing

Held on May 17, 2023 at 10:00 AM at Texas Township Hall

Texas Charter Township has collaboratively worked with the Kalamazoo County Drain Commissioner to establish lake levels on Crooked and Eagle Lakes under Part 307 of Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. This process was necessary to construct infrastructure to permanently control lake levels on both lakes to prevent future flooding and property damage after what occurred in 2018. After hard work and input from residents and stakeholders, the Township and Drain Commissioner were able to establish lake levels on both lakes and received permitting approvals for a permanent lake level project.
