Marilla Township

Marilla Township FALL Clean Up Day is October 14th, 2023.  The township will be working again with Guthrie’s in Mesick to offer another 2023 clean-up day.  Collection is at the township hall, 8 am- 12 pm, on a first come first serve basis but will not be open before 8am. This is a special event for the residents. We will be open to taking donations if you enjoy having the second clean-up day and would like to see it happen again next year. Call the hall or text the clerk for more information.

Election News

With the passing of Proposal 2-2022 there will be some changes coming to our township. If you would like to learn more about these and other election related topics, please ask. We also have volunteer opportunities for ages 16 and up. It’s never too early or too late to get involved. 

Some may already know that our drop box was “unusable” for this last election as it did not meet the new law requirements at the time. We are working to meet them and improve security for our voters. As part of this there will be a new flood light and security camera installed at our hall that will provide visual coverage of the porch, drop box and parking lot. The next time you visit us, feel free to give a wave.
