The Township Board, serving as the Canvass Board, certified the election results after the conclusion of the annual meeting on March 14th.

Assuming that does not happen, Mr. Melford will be issued the appropriate paperwork and be sworn in and then participate in the April township board meeting. Congratulations Michael!
