A Note about a fundraising solicitation:   

It has come to our attention that the Plainfield Charter Township Fire Fighters Union has been soliciting money as a fundraiser. Please be advised that this fundraiser IS NOT SPONSORED BY, SANCTIONED OR APPROVED BY PLAINFIELD CHARTER TOWNSHIP. This is a fundraising event by a labor union. Be advised labor organizations are not charities and your donation may not be used for any charitable purposes. Likewise, the person who makes these phone solicitations is likely NOT a member of the fire department, but is a professional for-profit fundraiser. According to the Michigan Attorney General’s Consumer Alert on police and fire solicitations, professional fundraisers for public safety groups KEEP AS MUCH AS 90% OF YOUR CONTRIBUTION as compensation. Some fundraisers may use deceptive tactics to induce you to make a donation. They may imply you will be better protected if you make a donation. THIS IS BOTH UNTRUE AND ILLEGAL. They may thank you for previous donations, even if you never made any.

If you believe you have been misled or lied to or if you receive a bill for a pledge you did not make, you can file a complaint directly with the Attorney General’s Charitable Trust Section at 1-800-769-4515. The link to Michigan Attorney General’s Consumer Alert on police and fire solicitations is:,4534,7-164-17337_18095-44607--,00.html.

Important Information for Disabled Veterans Governor Rick Snyder recently signed legislation that extends the current homestead property tax exemption for disabled military veterans to a veteran’s spouse if the veteran passes away before the tax break is granted. The existing property tax exemption eases the cost of home ownership for military veterans who were honorably discharged and are disabled and unable to work.
