Two Lake Sewer Authority
PLEASE NOTE: Next Authority Meeting will be held Tuesday, Mar. 7th at Bear Lake Township Hall
DEAR RESIDENTS OF BEAR LAKE TOWNSHIP, PLEASANTON TOWNSHIP,
ONEKAMA TOWNSHIP, AND THE VILLAGE OF BEAR LAKE:
Last week, a mailing was sent out containing documents pertaining to the proposed new Two Lakes Collaborative Sewer Authority (“TLCSA”) and the new proposed sewer system that would include bear lake and portage lake. The Township Clerk’s offices have received many calls and/or other inquiries of concern about this mailing. These inquiries were prompted by the fact that the clerks names and addresses were placed on the return address portion of the envelopes, containing the mailing. The placement of the clerk’s names and addresses within the envelope’s return address was not proper because the clerk did not send out these letters. The letters were in fact sent out by two lakes sewer concerned citizens (“TLSCC”). Correlatively, the Township Clerks did not author any part of the cover letter included inside the mailing which resembles a township billing statement to some degree.

NOTICE OF INTENT TO FILE APPLICATION
for taking the time! You and your fellow community members submitted over 300 questions about the proposed sewage system and - good news! - we now have answers to these questions here.
The TLCSA was formed by Bear Lake Township, the Village of Bear Lake, Onekama Township and Pleasanton Township in 2017 with a purpose to plan, design, engineer, finance, construct and operate a public sewage disposal system serving sewage districts in those municipal units.
We sought questions from all interests about any element of the project and have prepared factual answers that are now available here.
Our goal is a shared understanding of the facts involving this project. In the case of questions where the answer is unknown, we will state that as the case.
