If you are thinking about buying a house in or around Oscoda....Do NOT buy or even RENT for that matter in Au Sable township! We have been buying our house for over 6 years and have had NOTHING but problems. Our yard is always kept nice, my kids toys are normally put away. We don't have trash in our yard. YES, we have a ripped up flag.... THATS the only negative. But this township writes us up for anything they can! We are NOT allowed to have a boat, trailer, wood....etc in our front yard. But when we asked about the guy down the street having a boat, trailer, trash, wood, and other crap in his front yard, they laugh it off...Why? Because he works/knows the maintenance guy for this township...Cal Taylor! Cal stopped my husband from leaving our driveway so he could put him down and swear in front of my daughter (who is 5) when I asked him to stop, his response every time was "Whatever" No apology for the way he acted (while on the clock)no sorry for swearing in front of your child...NOTHING. They are so crooked and unprofessional in this township, it makes me sick! And when I turned in the guy (with all the junk in his yard) his son in law had the nerve to tell us "I wouldn't do that if I were you"...why, whats he going to do??? If you are a first responder in this get away with anything you want. But if you are a paying resident in this area, SCREW YOU! Cal had the nerve to tell us that we are a disgrace for "yelling" at our kids outside..We DO discipline our children YES...Which is what most kids lack! We are not mean. We are loving! He told us to take down our flag because its ripped! HA! You are a maintenance "man", you CANT tell me what to do with my property! He acts like a big man....but really he is a PUNK! This township is the most crooked place to live! And if I could sell my house and move, I would! But instead, I will stay here and make their lives miserable... Also, if you ARE planning on living here... They hate kids, dogs and parents who stick up for their kids! Screw you Au Sable Township!

Its not that we CANT have stuff in our yard. Theres nothing in my yard. But anything we do is wrong. We get denied for things other people can have. They favor who they know and like the best! We had a boat in our front yard that had to be moved to the side or back yard but the guy down the street can have his boat, trailer and crap in their yard which also looks like crap with all the weeds, but if others let their grass grow an inch too long they get wrote up! This township is a joke!

I do remember reading in a government class I took in college that an American Flag should never be displayed if it has been marred torn or burned in anyway, except in the lines of battle. So, my friend, your Maintenance Man knows more than you do about displaying our Flag. Perhaps he was in service and was taught those facts. Signed, a lady from Ann Arbor Michigan.

As for the casino coment. Here is one question for you. Does the casino take Good stamps or cash Welfare or Unimployedment Checks? If you can afford to waiste money on casinos you should be able to afford gas to drive to one.

Now they are tagging some of the vacationers homes in the villages. How can the residents know what is going on if they do not want you to know. Keeping it quiet lets the trouble makers get away with what they are doing What is going on in town to make the stores empty and not much work for employment. Could this be some of the problem.
