New Township Clerk, Jessica Boonstra
Our beloved long-time clerk, Sharon Ream, has been training her replacement for almost a year now. Serving faithfully as Deputy Clerk, Jessica Boonstra, here with husband Brad, assumed the role of clerk on January first of this year. Jessica has worked at the Mesick Pharmacy for many years and is well acquainted with most people in the township in that role. If you see Jessica the next time you are in the Pharmacy, please congratulate her on her new role in the township, and give her all your well wishes for success as Township Clerk. Sharon will continue serving as the Deputy Clerk to insure a smooth transition for Jessica.
NOTE: Thank you for voting!
NOTE: We have been getting more calls from people wanting to split their parcels. If you are one of those folks, please call the township assessor Jay at 231-248-2977.
We would like to welcome you to the Springville Township website. Please get to know us in a personal way. Since 1868 when William Dean was the first Supervisor we have been elected by the people to serve the people in this special Michigan township. Springville is a “General law township” as opposed to a few townships in Michigan which are “Charter townships.”
What Does Springville Township Do?
State Law mandates our township perform three main duties, assessment administration, elections administration and tax collection. Thus, the three main officer’s functions, the Supervisor, the Clerk and the Treasurer. Also, we have procedures for financial administration, which are budgets, accounting, investments and deposits. Our Township Meetings must comply with Michigan’s Open Meetings Act (MCL 15.231, et seq.) and township records must be stored and made available through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA – MCL 15.231, et seq.).
Beyond those mandated functions, the township also supplies needed programs for the people in the area, such as the Fire Department and overseeing cemeteries. Basically, the township can offer services that protect the health, safety and welfare of the communities within its jurisdiction.
