Public Hearing - Firearms Ordinance
The Chocolay Township Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 5:30 PM at the Chocolay Township Hall at 5010 US 41 South, Marquette to hear public comment on the proposed adoption of Ordinance #61 pertaining to the use of firearms in the Township. The proposed ordinance is a rewrite of Ordinance #35, which prohibits the use of firearms in residential and commercial areas. The ordinance has been rewritten to include updated zoning districts, modification of several definitions, editorial correction of several errors in text, and a change in the required distance from buildings to match the State of Michigan regulations. The recommended version would prohibit the discharge of any firearm in the restricted areas.
Copies of the proposed ordinance are available for review and inspection at the Chocolay Township Hall Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM, and can also be viewed here. Written comments will be received until 3 PM June 1. Questions or written comments can be directed to Steve Lawry at 249-1448 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Chocolay Township will provide necessary reasonable auxiliary aids and services to individuals with disabilities at the meeting upon four business days' notice to the Chocolay Township Clerk.
