The Michigan statewide moratorium on water fees and shutoffs expired March 31, 2021.
The Township Board understands that the past year has created financial hardship for many of our residents.
We will make every effort to help you get up to date on your water bill.
Your next water bill must be paid in FULL to avoid interest and late fees.
You may pay by cash, check, or call the office to process a payment over the phone with a debit or credit card.
If this payment is not possible a payment plan may be set up to get your household back on track.
Payment plans are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and must be approved by the Township.
Please contact Utility Clerk, Helen with any questions regarding payment or the available Payment Plan.

BREITUNG TOWNSHIP NOW HAS
TWO DROPBOXES FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE!
You may utilize either one to drop off your utility/tax payments, absentee ballots/applications, or any other Township correspondence. The first box is the original one located to the right of the front doors of the Township Office Building and requires you to park and walk up to it. The second and new drop-box is located on the south side of the Township Office building, in front of the Board Room entrance, and allows you to drive-up and place your items in the box without having to leave your car.
PLEASE NOTE: THE NEW DROP-BOX LOOKS LIKE A USPS MAILBOX, HOWEVER, IT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN TOWNSHIP CORRESPONDENCE OR PAYMENTS. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE YOUR USPS MAIL IN THE BOX.
