It’s official. Tyrone Township Hall personnel have completed the move to their new offices. They will be showing off their new digs at an open house Tuesday, Jan. 21, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The public is invited — snacks and refreshments will be available, according to Supervisor Mike Cunningham.
The 8420 Runyan Lake Rd. complex was purchased for $1 million cash from the Baptist Convention of Michigan.
Cunningham has said previously that the funds to buy the property were in the bank.
“We will not be asking our residents for a millage, special assessment, or raising the current millage rate to pay for the new building,” he said. “We have the money in our building and revolving funds. We will still continue to contribute to the maintenance of our roads and will be able to replenish the cash spent for the purchase of the new township hall in a few years, due to annual budget surpluses.”
The new township hall is more than twice the size of their Center Road offices — 10,500 square feet versus 4,997 square feet. The new building was built in 2003 and sits on 10 acres.
“It has a lot more office space and is easier to navigate,” Cunningham said. The current chapel was converted to the public township board meeting room.
“There is plenty of room for growth,” Cunningham said.
Tyrone Township officials put the Center Road building on the market late last year. They are currently reviewing offers submitted by the Dec. 31, 2019 deadline.
