Rollin-Woodstock and Posey Lake Sanitary Drains

Residential buildings in Rollin Township are connected to sewers or septic systems depending on their location. Sewer bills are distributed quarterly from the Rollin Township clerk’s office. Questions regarding sewer bills should be directed to the clerk at 547-7786, ext. 20. Please do not call the waste water treatment plant.

Policies such as fees and past due penalties, regarding the Rollin-Woodstock and Posey Lake Sanitary Drains are governed by the Public Acts of Michigan (1933), Act 94, as amended and the Public Acts of Michigan (1956), Act 40, as amended.

Sewer bills are mailed quarterly, on or about January 1st, April 1st, July 1st, and October 1st.
Payments are late for each quarter, if not received or postmarked by January 25th, April 25th, July 25th, or October 25th. A 10% penalty is added if payments are received past the due date. Failure to receive a bill does not waive past due penalties.

Posey Lake sewer invoices are billed for the following quarter (paying ahead). Rollin-Woodstock accounts are billed in arrears, for past quarter usage.

Payments should be sent to the township at P.O. Box 297; Manitou Beach, MI 49253. They may also be made in person to the treasurer at the township hall on Tuesdays from 2:30-6 p.m. or Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., or dropped into the mail slot on east door of the township hall.

Computer-users may pay sewer bills with an internet check. Contact the bank for details. Internet checks are submitted for payment at the end of the billing cycle, on or shortly after the 25th of January, April, July, or October.

It is also possible to set up automatic payment of sewer bills. This option eliminates the need to issue a check for payment, automatically charging your checking or savings account (whichever you choose) on the payment due date.

The form with instructions and details can be found on the Downloadable Forms and Documents page. Click on the link below to access this document.

Automatic Sewer Bill Payment Form

On or about the last Friday in September, all delinquent sewer accounts are added to the Winter Tax Roll. Any late sewer payments made after that occurs will be credited to the current customer account (not removed from the winter tax invoice).

CHANGE OF ADDRESS or PROPERTY OWNERSHIP: Please notify the township clerk immediately, regarding changes in mailing addresses or property ownership.

Capping of Sewers/ Bond Debt

If a sewer is temporarily or permanently capped, home owners should notify the Rollin Township Clerk and submit proof of capping immediately. The Lenawee County Drain Commission usually forwards capping documents to the township, but homeowners are encouraged to verify that this has been done. When a sewer is capped, the bond debt ($40.50 per parcel) will continue to be charged. The current bond debt will be paid off in October of 2021.

Sewers and Septic Tanks

All sanitary waste disposal fields and septic tanks must conform to Lenawee County Health Department standards.
