Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Township Supervisor. If you ever have a need that is township related, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone at 677-1248 or e-mail me at tvaness@tallmadge.com.

Despite the general economic downturn, Tallmadge has just finished our 8th consecutive year of operating within its budget. This has allowed your board to begin rebuilding the rainy day funds to a safe level. This is helpful should we need to borrow funds or issue bonds for roads, parks, sewer/water or building projects.

We should also be able to build or resurface roads that the Ottawa County Road Commission does not. This would include gravel or subdivision roads. These roads are a shared responsibility of the residents and the township. If you live in an area mentioned above, you may petition the Township along with 51% of your neighbors. We will then review how we might be of assistance. Please call me for further information.
