For the Township of Grand Haven, "Public Services" includes (1) the
operation of a municipal water distribution system;
(2) the operation of wastewater collection
system ; (3) the operation and maintenance of an extensive
parks and recreation system,
which includes over 22 miles of non-motorized pathway; (4) the operation
and maintenance of two cemeteries; and, (5)
the operation and maintenance of a local area computer network (LAN) and
Other operations such as streets and roads, storm water, and trash
disposal, which are normally included under the category of public
works, are only indirectly affected by the Township. Although the
Township is involved in paving and re-paving projects, all statutory
responsibility and authority with regard to streets and roads is through
the Ottawa County Road Commission.
Similarly, although the Township funds storm drainage improvement
projects, the legal responsibility and authority for these functions
lies with the
County Drain Commissioner. The service of waste disposal, except
some limited yard waste collection, is controlled indirectly through the
Township's licensing powers with private companies.
The Department of Public Services consists of a director, an
assistant director and six full-time staff. In addition, the department
hires two seasonal employees during the summer months.
