About 70 residents of Maple Valley Township in a marathon three-and-a-half-hour meeting on Saturday morning/afternoon made multiple decisions regarding the township budget and the salaries of elected officials.
Michigan’s Public Act 187 of 1988 eliminated the requirement that general law townships hold an annual meeting of the electors. However, if the township board adopts a resolution to hold an annual meeting and has not created a compensation commission, the electors at the annual meeting are authorized to set the salaries of the township supervisor, clerk and treasurer and trustees, according to MCL 41.95.

In falling within the scope of the city’s charter, the special meeting, including a public hearing on the budget, was required to occur, “Not later than the second week in May,” thus resulting in the special meeting.

The Edmore Village Council set rates for the village’s two millages at Monday’s meeting.
