Always in Season on Mullett Lake

Welcome

Topinabee invites you to join us along the shores of Mullett Lake in northern Michigan where the good life is always in season. We enjoy a wonderful small town atmosphere with shops, restaurants, and a local market and deli. But it’s the awesome natural beauty all around that is the real reason we live here in our part of the Great Up North. Come and visit us in Topinabee and you and your family will see what we mean!

WINTER WONDERLAND

Topinabee was blessed with about a foot of snow!

Hobie Kirsch was elected to serve as Mullett Township supervisor.  He replaces Mary Ann Gale.  A big thank you is owed to Mary Ann for her efforts to make our township a better place to live.  Her hard work and dedication to the Township is greatly appreciated.  The township was fortunate to have her services for the past four years.

The other members of the Board were re-elected: Rachel Osborn, secretary, Kathy Flory, Treasurer and trustees: John Brown and Dennis Dombroski

Hobie is a native of Cheboygan and moved to Topinabee when he was 16.  After high school he joined the navy and served in the submarine corp.  He traveled around the world and under the polar ice cap and served in “Desert Shield” while in the Navy.  After his service to our country, he formed his own company-Home Solutions- a home improvement company.  He has also worked as the township maintenance supervisor.

He lives with his wife Tammy and enjoys hunting and fishing.  We all look forward to Hobie’s leadership as the township moves forward.

TOWNSHIP PLANS FOR PARK IMPROVEMENTS
The Township is submitting an application for a MNRTF Grant to make additional improvements to the park area to include additional defined parking around the area of the restrooms and at the north end of the pavilion.    It will include a rain garden and drainage to better handle storm water runoff.   A pathway will connect the pavilion and parking area with the trail and the new ADA pathway down to the lake and new beach area.    A retaining wall will be built along the highway in the parking area adjacent to the existing restrooms and the kayak rack will be installed down by the lake so people have a place to put their kayaks.  Native plantings and new trees will be featured.  The plan is below:
