Burt Township (Cheboygan Co.) Supervisor Harold Koviak has been elected treasurer of the Michigan Townships Association (MTA). He was elected to the position at the Association’s Annual Educational Conference & Expo, held April 25-28 in Lansing.
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 and Emmet Counties.
“I am truly honored to serve as MTA treasurer,” 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. It is my privilege to represent township officials throughout the state as MTA treasurer.”
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.
