BE AWARE! ELECTRIC SHOCK DROWNING IS A SERIOUS ISSUE!

With water levels still extremely high in the Great Lakes and our inland lakes, there is an increased possibility of a person falling victim to Electric Shock Drowning (ESD). Swimmers, boaters, and dock owners should arm themselves with more knowledge about how this silent, invisible danger can quickly turn a fun day into a tragic day. The Emmet County Building Department has put together an informational article to help you learn more.


NEW EMMET COUNTY MASTER PLAN AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW

At its May 21 regular monthly meeting, the Emmet County Board of Commissioners approved the draft version of a new Emmet County Master Plan for the years 2020-2024. Commissioners requested the Master Plan, as well as the public comments from a community survey conducted in mid-2019, be available to the public for review. County officials encourage the public to review the Master Plan, read through the comments provided by local residents to our survey, and check out a detailed community vulnerability assessment that was conducted in 2019 by the Land Information Access Association for the purpose of providing information aimed at improving climate resilience by reducing human and community vulnerabilities. Additional comments may be emailed to Tammy Doernenburg, Planning and Zoning Director.
