Welcome to Michigan’s Great Britton! We are a small farming community with friendly faces. We are always willing to lend a helping hand when needed and meet a new friend. We are proud to say that many of the current residents in our village are direct descendents of its founders.
Welcome to four new officials of the village. Don Davis, Elizabeth Greene, and Derek Auten were appointed as trustees to fill vacant seats on the council until the November 2016 election. Donna Cline was appointed to the position of Village Treasurer. Her office is in the Village Council Building.
