Welcome to the Charter Township of Garfield!

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS: On Thursday, May 14, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm, MDOT will hold a US 31 M-37 Division Street Public Information Open House to discuss design alternatives for the Division Street corridor between 14th Street and the Parkway. The meeting will be held at the Governmental Center (400 Boardman Avenue) in the 2nd floor training room.

As you may be aware, one of the design concepts is to construct one or more modern roundabout at the major intersections. If you are interested in learning more about how this type of intersection would function, please take a moment to watch the following video:

All interested persons are welcome to attend the open house. If you are unable to attend but would still like to comment, please use the "Your Comments" tool and we will forward your thoughts to MDOT.

Garfield Township wants to bring to your attention that there have been reports of telephone scams in the area involving property taxes. The scam involves a caller claiming to work for a company called Diversified Consultants, calling to verify your personal information, including your social security number, and is attempting to collect delinquent property taxes. Please do not give them any personal information and contact police authorities at their non-emergency number (231) 922-4550.

Please note that if you are delinquent on your taxes you would be contacted directly by Garfield Township or Grand Traverse County, not by an outside firm, and we would not ask for personal information— such as your social security number.
