Welcome to

Alger County

The county government operates the jail, operates the major local courts, keeps files of deeds and mortgages, maintains vital records, and participates with the state in the provision of welfare and other social services. The county board of commissioners controls the budget but has only limited authority to make laws or ordinances. In Michigan, most local government functions — police and fire, building and zoning, tax assessment, street maintenance, etc. — are the responsibility of individual cities and townships.
