Regularly updated ordinances don't just protect your residents and retain the character of your community, they keep your township out of legal trouble.

While you're at it, why not register for our July webinar on ordinance enforcement? Held July 13 at Noon the final webinar in our series on ordinances reviews successful enforcement strategies.

Find out if your township's assessing measures up at MTA's June webinar:

Assessing Your Township’s Assessing
Assessment administration is one of three mandated functions that townships are required to perform. We know that not everyone “speaks assessing” but it’s critical that your board knows what to ask and what to look for. This one-hour webinar, led by MTA’s own Cindy Dodge—a certified assessor—will identify steps you can take to ensure your assessing functions are running smoothly. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of the board’s role in assessing oversight, including what happens if your township doesn’t measure up. Don’t delay, register today!

You can register here now and we'll send you a link when the recorded version is posted in our Online Learning Center, which is sponsored in part by Michigan CLASS.
