||Michigan DNR No Wake on Taylor Lake
Bylaws, Ordinances, and Incorporation Documents
The Michigan DNR enforces local lake usage ordinances enacted by counties, cities or townships. The DNR special local watercraft control shown here is a Rose Township ordinance. Under current Michican law, a standard (un-chartered) township can only enact a "no-wake" ordinance for a township lake. A chartered township or city has the authority to implement more specific and restrictive lake usage ordinances.
Restrictions on how lakes may be used are always very charged and emotional issues and have significant financial consequences. Individuals, organizations, marine related businesses and property developers periodically challenge local and state regulations.
