Boards & Commissions

Michigan statutes enable township boards to create various appointed boards and commissions to help them manage township government. The statutes also specify the number of board members and the terms of their service. Under this authority the Scio Board of Trustees, which is an elected body, has created several statutory boards and commissions including:

  • The Board of Trustees
  • The Planning Commission
  • The Zoning Board of Appeals
  • The Board of Review
  • The Downtown Development Authority
  • The Economic Development Corporation

Township boards also have the ability to create other commissions and committees to accomplish specific objectives. These non-statutory committees often come together at the request of residents who see a need in the township. Currently, Scio has four such issue-oriented committees:

  • The Economic Development Action Committee (EDAC)
  • The Land Preservation Commission (LPC)
  • The Local Roads Committee
  • The Paths Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC)

Scio is fortunate to have a large reservoir of citizens with knowledge, skills and interest who are willing to donate their time to the community. The work of these many boards and committees, whether statutory or interest-oriented, contributes significantly to the welfare of our community.
