Public Notices

*Note:  Due to the Shoppers Guide no longer providing their paper to the general Keene Township residents, the Township will be placing legal notices in the Ionia County Sentinel Standard which will be in the Legal section.  We will also be publishing these same notices occasionally, additionally by putting them in the Shoppers Guide, Lowell Ledger, or Lowell Buyers Guide as needed depending on the application location and topic.  Only residents in the 48881 zip code will get the Shoppers Guide by mail.  Others will have to pick up the Guide at their Saranac office or some Belding stores/gas stations or Lowell Buyers Guide office.  All legal notices will also, as usual, be on the Township Website and posted at the Township Hall.

The Zoning Board of Appeals will meet on April 11 at 7:00 pm to hear a zoning variance request.  Click on "ZBA Notice" below to read the full notice. Click on "ZBA APP" to review the application.
