Burt Township supervisor elected second vice president of Michigan Townships Association
Burt Township (Cheboygan Co.) Supervisor Harold Koviak has been elected second vice president of the Michigan Townships Association (MTA). He was elected to the position at the Association’s Annual Educational Conference & Expo, held April 17-20 at the Grand Traverse Resort in Acme Township.
Koviak, who has served as township supervisor since 2002, was first elected to the MTA Board of Directors in 2013. He serves as director of MTA District 5, which encompasses Charlevoix, Cheboygan and Emmet Counties.
“I am truly honored to serve as MTA second vice president,” 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 second vice president.”
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.
