Please Read the Memorial Plaque Letter to see how you can help the Library/Community Center yourself. “The Letter” Thank you for reading the letter and may our community continue to grow as accomplishments are made.

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.
