Land Use Applicants must have a Pre-Application for land use, building and/or special-use permit approved by Marlette Township before an building permit can be issued by the Sanilac County Building Department. Construction must conform to ALL Marlette Township Zoning Ordinances in effect at the time of issuance o the permit. The Pre-Application form must be completely filled out and must include a detailed site plan or site drawing. The site will be subjected to an on-site inspection by the proper official(s) of Marlette Township.
Marlette Township requires a non-refundable inspection fee per site or building payable to "Marlette Township" BEFORE any inspections can take place.
A fifty ($50.00) dollar performance bond will also be due at that time and will be refunded upon the return of the signed "Completed and Approved" Land Use Permit Review form as provided by the Sanilac County Building Department. If you decide to not start your project you will need to contact the Zoning Administrator and the fifty ($50.00) dollar performance bond will be returned via check issued by the Township Clerk. Failure to notify the Zoning Administrator or failure to return the review form will result in your performance bond being forfeited after one (1) year.
