So, what does the Township Supervisor do?
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):
• Moderate Board Meetings
• 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)
• The maintenance of all records of the Supervisor's office
• 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)
• Overall management, direction & coordination of the Township operations and activities
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.
• Public Safety Advisory Committee
• Caledonia Independence Day Committee
• Elections Commission
• Finance Committee
• Trails, Parks and Recreation Committee
• Personnel Committee
• Township Board Chair
• Water and Sewer Advisory Committee
As Supervisor, I maintain an open mind, 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 (318-8216) or let’s meet. I’m always willing to buy the coffee.
