About Us

Weldon Township is located in Benzie County, Michigan and includes the west half of the Village of Thompsonville. Within the township are miles of public land open to hunting and many other outdoor activities, which includes miles of hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobile trails. Note that there are also many parcels of private land in between the public land, so please be careful and respect the rights of landowners. The Betsie River runs through the township with many points of access. The Betsie is well known for its Steelhead and Salmon runs.

Welcome and enjoy your visit to Weldon Township!

  • Due to the unexpected death of Craig Meredith, Weldon Township Zoning Administrator, we are asking that you direct any inquiries for zoning issues, including Land Use Permits, to Ron Hitesman, Weldon Township Supervisor. You may contact him at 231-378-2477 or via email.

  • Weldon Township tax bills will be mailed about December 1. The best way to pay your bill is by mail. Since the treasurer does not have regular office hours, the only days to pay in person are December 27, 2022 and February 28, 2023.

  • Weldon Township's Community Garden is ready for planting. If you are a Township resident and would like to plant and care for some vegetables, please contact the Township office for more information or to reserve a spot now for next year.
