FSBR to Host Free Workshop for Township Officials

Township Friends,

The elections are finally over.  Welcome to (or back to) the Township Board!

Make sure you and your new township board colleagues are ready to respond to township challenges by attending our free 1/2 day workshop on Wednesday, December 5, in Okemos.

Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC is holding this workshop for new township board members and other township officials who would like a review of important areas of township law.  You and other township officials are invited!

Whether the Township has new officials starting November 20, or even if you need a refresher yourself, this workshop will be useful and informative.  Topics covered will include Open Meetings, Freedom of Information, Labor and Employment, Zoning and Land Use, Ordinance Adoption and Enforcement, Property Taxes, Drains, Medical Marihuana, and much more.

The workshop details are:
