Ready to Give Back to Our Community?


Elk Rapids is blessed with an abundance of highly educated, community-focused people. We need you! Serving on a village commission is a fulfilling experience; think ice rink, tree plantings, downtown events.  Please help us continue to keep our village maintained and our trees and gardens beautiful. We have current open positions on Beautification, which handles short- and long-term planning of the varied aspects of beautification.  Direct questions to Caroline Kennedy, Assistant Village Manager/Clerk (264-9274 ext. 201).
