Alpena County Government

The county government operates the jail, maintains rural roads, operates the major local courts, keeps files of deeds and mortgages, maintains vital records, administers public health regulations, and participates with the state in the provision of welfare and other social services. The county board of commissioners controls the budget but has only limited authority to make laws or ordinances. In Michigan, most local government functions — police and fire; building and zoning, tax assessment, street maintenance, etc. — are the responsibility of individual cities and townships. The County operates three parks (and camp grounds) with beaches on local lakes, namely Beaver Lake Park in Lachine; Long Lake Park in Alpena; and Sunken Lake Park in Posen

Alpena County has finalized a draft Recreation Plan with the assistance of the Northeast Michigan Council of Governments. The purpose of the Recreation Plan is to inventory recreational facilities in the Township and to provide an action plan for future recreational improvements. In addition, Recreation Plans that have been approved by the Department of Natural Resources allow the Township to be eligible for State recreational grant funding.  After gathering public input, the Planning Commission has drafted goals and an action plan for recreation in Alpena County.

The final draft of the Alpena County Recreation Plan is available for public review at the Alpena County Library, MSU Extension office in Alpena, NEMCOG or by clicking here. Written comments may be submitted to Mary Dunckel, 603 South 11th Avenue, Alpena, MI 49707-2645.
