BERRIEN SPRINGS — Over 800 rental units were registered under Oronoko Township’s new rental housing ordinance by the late August deadline. Township Supervisor Mike Hildebrand said this week that the township has received 331 applications registering 842 units.

The township board approved the new rental ordinance in June and set a deadline of Aug. 30 for people to register their properties. Those who did not meet that deadline will now have to pay late fees.
