What the Township Supervisor Does

In many communities, the Township Supervisor is often the first official contacted about a problem or concern. Therefore, I have always believed that the ability to listen is the foundation of being able to lead. As Township Supervisor I have certain statutory duties (duties defined by state law):

  • Adoption of the Township Budget (I work closely with our Treasurer as he is the money man)
  • Appointment of various commission members (let me know if you'd like to serve)
  • The maintenance of all records of the Supervisor's office
  • Moderate Board Meetings
  • Overall management, direction, and coordination of the Township operations and activities
  • Secretary to the Board of Review (a citizen board that reviews property tax levels on your home)
  • Township's Legal Agent (work with the lawyers)

In addition to those defined by law, I have other ongoing responsibilities. Serving on the following committees helps me stay abreast of the many issues that affect our Township on both the local and state level:

  • Caledonia Independence Day Committee
  • Elections Commission
  • Finance Committee
  • Personnel Committee
  • Public Safety Advisory Committee
  • Township Board Chair
  • Trails, Parks and Recreation Committee
  • Water and Sewer Advisory Committee

As Supervisor, I maintain an open mind, an open ear, open-door policy. It is an honor to serve you and represent you. I welcome your comments, suggestions; and yes, even complaints. Give me a call at 616-318-8216 or let's meet. I'm always willing to buy coffee.
