Ordinance Adoption and Enforcement

Michigan township governments have the authority to adopt and enforce local ordinances (see MCL 41.181). The most effective ordinance is one that is enforced.

With the exception of township zoning, Michigan statutes do not convey who must enforce an adopted township ordinance. The township board has the responsibility to determine how and who will enforce township ordinances. By adopting a zoning enforcement officer ordinance, the township board can specify ordinance enforcement procedures. Ordinance enforcement officers however, do not have the same power as a police officer. Township boards may also hire or contract ordinance enforcement through local police departments, another governmental unit, county sheriff or a private individual.

Townships have broad powers to enact and enforce ordinances. ZONING ORDINANCES regulate land use, while many other “police power,” non-zoning ordinances control activities that protect the health, safety and general welfare of the community. Rollin Township's GOVERNING ORDINANCE includes all of these "non-zoning ordinances".
