Stony Lake Improvement Board

The Stony Lake Improvement Board was organized in 2009 by a vote of the Benona and Claybanks Township Boards. Members of the Board include representatives from each township, a Stony Lake resident, and representatives from the Oceana County Commission and the office of the Drain Commissioner. The Board was formed under provisions of Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act.  Reports on each summer’s activities can be found in the Newzletter.
