Township of Sullivan
County of Muskegon, Michigan
Notice of Receipt of Eligibility to become a Charter Township
Official Notification has been received from the Michigan Secretary of State that Sullivan Township now has a population of 2,000 or more according to the most recent United States census report and is therefore eligible to incorporate as a charter Township.
One of the mechanisms by which an eligible township may convert to a charter township is by adopting a resolution of intent to incorporate, which is subject to a 60-day referendum period upon petition of 10% of the number of votes cast for the office of supervisor in the last election. In the case of townships that do not adopt the resolution of intent to incorporate as a charter township, the citizens have the right to file a referendum petition as described above. The form of the petition is described in the Michigan Election Law. If a sufficient petition is filed in such a situation, then the question of incorporation would be placed on the ballot of the next township election.
Sullivan township is required by law to publish this notice. The township has not, however, adopted a resolution of intent to incorporate as a charter township.
