Berlin Charter Township was formerly a part of Ash Township, which in 1837 was organized out of Frenchtown Township and became an independent Township when it was organized out of Ash in 1867.  As part of the Monroe Metropolitan Area, the township is also classified as part of the much larger Metro Detroit region.

The Pointe Mouillee State Game Area is located within Berlin Charter Township. The township contains two listings on the National Register of Historic Places. The Detroit River Light is within the township's water boundaries, although the station is under the jurisdiction of the United States Coast Guard. The Jefferson Avenue-Huron River Bridge spans the Huron River, connecting Berlin to Brownstown Charter Township in Wayne County. The eastern portion of the township along Lake Erie is served by Jefferson Schools, while the rest of the township is served by Airport and Flat Rock Community Schools.

• Estral Beach is a village in the southeastern most portion of the township along Lake Erie.

• Newport is an unincorporated area centered at  42°00′08″N 83°18′31″W42.00222°N 83.30861°W in the southwest portion of the township. As an unincorporated area, Newport has no legal boundaries or demographic statistics of its own. Newport contains its own post office, and most locations in Berlin Charter Township use Newport as a mailing address. The areas included in the Newport community extend into Frenchtown Charter Township to the south and also includes the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Generating Station.

• South Rockwood is a village located in the northern portion of the township along the border of Wayne County.  It is the largest incorporated community in the township. South Rockwood contains its own post office in the 48179 zip code.

FIRE SAD letter explanation

Public Act 33 of 1951 (MCL 41.801, et seq) authorizes townships to purchase, house or operate police or fire equipment. The Township has for many years now collected two special assessments for fire from the unincorporated portion of the Township as well as the Village of South Rockwood but excludes the Village of Estral Beach as they have their own fire department. The law mandates that townships must specially assess for fire under PA 33 at a millage rate on taxable value. Together the Township could have collected up to 2.5 mills between the two special assessments which expired in 2020 and 2021. Fire assessments are applied only to real property that is not exempt from the collection of property taxes pursuant to the General Property Tax Act.

 

  1. Pay per Call Assessment: Township Fire Pay per Call Special Assessment District 2013-01 expired in December of 2020. It permitted an assessment of up to a 1/2 or .5 mills for pay per call funding for firefighters. Prior to that, Fire Pay Per Call Special Assessment District 2004-03 provided for an assessment of up to .5 mills was collected from 2004 through 2012.

 

  1. Fire Protection Assessment: Township Fire Special Assessment District 2016-01 expired in December of 2021. It permitted an assessment of up to 2 mills for general fire protection purposes. Prior to that ,Fire Special Assessment District 2010-01 of up to 2.0 mills was collected from 2010 through  2015.

 

The currently proposed special assessment for fire protection of up to 2 mills (2022-01) will replace both special assessments which expired in 2020 and 2021 and is actually a proposed decrease in the maximum millage that can be assessed from “up to 2.5 mills” down to up to a maximum of “up to 2.0 mills”. Special Assessment 22-01  will provide for pay for the firefighters and for funding of the Fire Department. The Fire Department Budget for 2022 which establishes the funding needed to support our Fire Department is on file at the Township Clerk’s Office and available for review upon request.

Laginess Park Parking Lot will be closed June 20th
