An elected Board of Trustees governs DeWitt Charter Township. The Board consists of a Supervisor, Clerk, Treasurer, and four Trustees. Some of the primary responsibilities of the Board include adopting Township policies and ordinances, adopting the annual budget, approving certain expenditures and contracts, determining types and levels of services to be provided, appointments to various committees and commissions, and ensuring the general welfare of the residents. All Board members are elected to four year terms in the Presidential Election year and take office on November 20th.
The Board of Trustees meets the second and fourth Monday of each month (see calendar) at 7:00 p.m. at the DeWitt Charter Township Hall, 1401 W. Herbison Road, DeWitt, Michigan. Minutes and agendas of previous meetings are available in the Documents & Forms section of our web site.
On April 13, 2009, the Township Board adopted its Strategic Plan. A Strategic Plan creates a vision and helps chart a plan for the future. The Plan, which covers a five-year rolling timeframe, is a disciplined, coordinated, systematic, and sustained effort that enables an organization to fulfill its mission and its vision.
