Hello Everyone,

My name is Sally Knowlton, and I am the new Treasurer for Kochville Township. I would like to thank the Board of Trustees for appointing me to this position. Their support is greatly appreciated. My Deputy Treasurer is Catey Knowlton. Catey received her Bachelor’s Degree from Central Michigan University and has financial background which is an asset to the Treasurer’s office.

Zoning Board of Appeals

Zoning Board of Appeals is looking for a new committee member.

*There are basically three types of cases which the Zoning Board of Appeals will hear:

1. An Appeal of an Administrative Decision. This type of case occurs when a citizen appeals a decision made by the zoning administrator, other review body or other official under the guidelines of the Township’s ordinance.
2. A Request for an Interpretation. This type of case occurs when a citizen or public official requests an interpretation of the zoning ordinance in terms of a specific use, classification or zoning boundary.
3. A Variance. Townships are specifically authorized to grant dimensional variances, which are requests for relief from the typical enforcement and administration of the ordinance due to specific and varied circumstances.

This board meets on an as-needed basis.
