Burt Township (Cheboygan Co.) Supervisor Harold Koviak has been named member-at-large of the Michigan Townships Association (MTA) Executive Committee, which considers and adopts strategic policies that guide the Association’s operations and vision. Koviak, who has served as township supervisor since 2002, was first elected to the MTA Board of Directors in 2013. He serves as MTA District 5 director, which encompasses Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet Counties.
“I am truly honored to join MTA’s Executive Committee,” Koviak said. “I enjoy working with all kinds of people, whether it’s my local residents as township supervisor or officials from my district as an MTA Board member. Now, on the executive committee, it is my privilege to represent township officials throughout the state.”
Koviak began his career in township government as a zoning administrator, where he served for eight years before being elected township trustee. He served in that position for two years until he was elected supervisor. Koviak has been a Michigan High School Athletic Association basketball referee for nearly four decades, and was awarded for his refereeing by the local community. In 2018, he was appointed by then-Gov. Rick Snyder to a four-year term on the Michigan Board of Counseling, which assists the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs with the licensing and oversight of more than 9,000 counselors in Michigan.
