Defer summer taxes

Some qualified residents may be able to defer summer taxes until February 2014.

"In many cases it allows them to pay the total annual tax without penalty," said Independence Township Treasurer Paul Brown.

To qualify for the income-based program, everyone in the house must make 40,000 or less. There are also other requirements to be met to receive the deferment.

For more information, call Brown at 248-525-5111.

City could hand

off assessing

Clarkston officials are in discussions with Independence Township Supervisor Pat Kittle and Director of Assessing Kristen Sieloff to allow Independence Township to conduct assessing work in the city.

City Manager Carol Eberhardt said they had a preliminary meeting to discuss the issue, and she would keep the council informed on the issue.

Dock removal nixed

City of the Village of Clarkston has received a complaint that a group of homeowners in the Village West Condominiums illegally installed a dock.

A group of Deer Lake homeowners contacted the city, and asked City Manager Carol Eberhardt to review an agreement between the developer and the city.

The developer of the condos agreed the subdivision would have no dock access. Eberhardt is meeting with consultants to investigate the issue.
