The Treasurer is responsible for the collection, deposit and investment of all Township funds. Temporary surplus funds are invested prudently with the emphasis on the safety of the principal as required by state law. The Treasurer directs the billing, collection and accounting of all property taxes levied by the Township.
The Treasurer’s Department collects property tax monies for all local taxing jurisdictions. For 2018, the amount of monies collected for each of the local taxing jurisdictions were as follows:
- Grand Haven Area Public Schools – $6.875 million
- Ottawa Area Intermediate School District – $4.338 million
- Ottawa County – $ 3.777 million
- Grand Haven Charter Township – $3.387 million

- Four Pointes Council on Aging – $180,000
One-year and three-year dog licenses are available for purchase at the Township offices throughout the year. Licenses should be renewed by the last day of the month in which the rabies vaccination expires. To qualify for a three-year license the dog must have received a new three-year rabies vaccination within the past 30 days. As a courtesy, the Ottawa County Treasurer's Office will mail license renewal applications the month before the license expires.
