  • Board of Trustees

    Hartland Township is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees. These Trustees are voted into office every four years and are responsible for the strategic direction of the Township. Two of the Trustees, the Treasurer and the Clerk, are full-time employees of the Township with duties as outlined by Michigan law. The remaining five Trustees, including the Township Supervisor, are part-time employees of the Township.
