From the Supervisor's Desk: A Zoning Administrator Update

We have moved swiftly to ensure that the office of the Zoning Administrator is running expertly to meet all the needs of our Township citizens.

At the April 20th Board meeting, the Board approved on a 4-1 vote, to hire Sara Kopriva as Interim Zoning Administrator. She comes to us with over 15 years of zoning administration experience. A big plus is that she also serves as our Planner with the Planning Commission and therefore we get to leverage a one-stop package for both areas. Sara will handle all the “nuts and bolts” of the Zoning Administrator role without the other administrative distractions that were being performed before by the Zoning Administrator.

In addition, the Board also approved, on the same 4-1 vote, the hiring of Jackie Petersen as Interim Assistant Zoning Administrator. Jackie comes with several years of experience as recording secretary of both the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Planning Commission. She brings a strong administrative skill set that will handle those duties of the ZA office and will benefit from being crossed trained by Sara as to the intricacies of the zoning administrator’s office.

I want to assure the community that the Board’s actions position us to continue to serve the community with a fully functioning Zoning Administration office. If anyone has any questions, concerns, or needs help with their zoning questions, we are more than prepared to take care of you.

Please feel free to reach out to either Sara or Jackie at the township office at 231-599-2036, ext. 105 or their email address at zoningadmin@torchlaketownship.org.

As always, please feel free to contact me either by phone or email to discuss this matter further or any other Township business.
