Deputy Security Check

Leaving for warmer weather? Or just taking a holiday vacation?

Spring Lake Township, through its community policing officer, provides free vacation security checks to its citizens who will be away from their homes, businesses, or other facilities for a period of time. Deputies will periodically check the exterior of the property. This service is offered to deter potential burglars and provides additional security while your property is unoccupied.

Any resident that will be out of the area may use the program, whether you are leaving for a short time or if you will be gone for several months. To request a property check, please submit the Property Check Form at least a week prior to your departure.

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid

The Ottawa Conservation District and partners are launching efforts to control and eradicate hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), an invasive species now established in Michigan. HWA is an insect that targets hemlocks as their source of food. They can be found at the base of hemlock needles on the undersides of branches

Reminder – if you see trimmed hemlock branches while out for a walk, DO NOT MOVE them. Eastern hemlocks are under quarantine in Allegan, Muskegon, Oceana and Ottawa counties due to HWA. Moving branches with needles is illegal at this time, since it can spread HWA.
