NEW EVENTS CALENDAR DESIGN!
We have upgraded the Events Calendar for clarity and ease of usage. We apologize for having a basic calendar for the past week, but upgrades do take time in inserting all the proper code for the changes. Thank you for your patience, and enjoy the new calendar. You will find the new Community Center Calendar where it says Events Calendar on the Community Center/Library button above. This calendar is specifically for Community Center Events and not any other township or village event, unless it is at the Community Center.
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.
