Shelby Township Office open 5 days a week.

SHELBY — Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, the Shelby Township office located in downtown Shelby will be open five days a week, Monday through Friday, versus the current four days.

The township board voted unanimously that the office needed to be open to the taxpaying residents during normal business hours five days a week.

“It is critically important that the residents of Shelby Township have an office that is open for business,” said Township Supervisor Richard Raffaelli.

In its December meeting, the township board voted unanimously to appoint Bill Glover as deputy township supervisor.

Raffaelli has forgone the supervisor’s salary and placed it back in the general budget, allowing another position to be added to the township without additional taxes being spent. The newly-created position will allow the township board to continue its economic development and strategic planning journey.

“Bill has decades of public service experience in Oceana County and has a master’s degree in common sense,” said Raffaelli. “Local government has a responsibility to exhibit more common sense while following the prescribed state and federal guidelines.”

The township board is looking into a new logo and is reviewing several options, including the logo used with this article, and is looking for feedback from the community.
