Sparta has a library, museum, airport, diverse industry, fire department, and an excellent school system. Established in 1846, Sparta Township's current population, including the Village, is 9,110 (per the 2010 census).

As is done each year in mid-October, the Township cemeteries will soon be cleared of debris before the leaves pile up and snow falls. All individual gravesite decorations must be removed by October 1. Remaining items will be picked up, stored for a couple weeks, then disposed of. Please call the Township office if you have any questions.
Summer property tax payment was due September 14. Late payments are still accepted at our office. Winter tax bills will be mailed December 1, with payment due by February 14. Please remember that postmarks are not accepted and even local mail takes several days to reach us. You may always pay in person in the office or use the payment drop box located next to the main entrance. If you would like a receipt, please include a stamped self-addressed envelope.
