The association’s Township of Excellence designation is awarded to Michigan townships that demonstrate best practices when delivering quality programs and services and accomplishing community-driven goals.
“The Township of Excellence award is not an exercise to be taken lightly or without deep commitment,” Price said. “I am very proud that Spring Lake Township was the first township in Michigan to achieve this level of excellence, and I commend them for their concerted efforts toward this goal on behalf of its citizens.”
Price and Meekhof welcomed Spring Lake Township Supervisor John Nash and other township officials to the Michigan Capitol, presenting them with a tribute to their achievement and commending the township on being the first recipient of the comprehensive recognition.
Nash said the designation affirmed the township’s commitment to meeting the highest standards and delivering high-quality township services.
“To achieve the complete Michigan Township Association’s Township of Excellence award was a very significant challenge and a significant honor to Spring Lake Township’s elected officials and our staff,” he said. “Now to be recognized by the Michigan governor’s office and the Michigan Legislature proves that our elected state officials are sincerely supportive of high standards in local government.”
