Supervisor
Kevin Peters
(616) 875 - 7707 x 103
I was born and raised in SE Grand Rapids and attended GR Christian High School.  I attended GR Community College for Architectural Drafting.

I am a Licensed Builder in the State of Michigan and have been in the building trades since 1994.

My wife Lyn and I moved to Blendon Township in 2014 and have enjoyed living in a more rural setting. We have three teenage children, Micah, Tyler and Jillian. We enjoy spending time outdoors doing a variety of different activities from hiking, boating, riding horses, camping and riding quads. We feel truly blessed to be a part of the Blendon Community.

Lyn and I became more involved with Blendon Township due to the development that was in our immediate surrounding area. Our involvement led to Lyn being asked to serve on the Planning Commission, of which she is a current member, and my recent election to the position of Supervisor.

I look forward to serving the members of the Blendon Township community as Supervisor and look forward to what God has in store for the future.


 

 

Clerk
Robin Overway
(616) 875 - 7707 x 104
I was raised in Zeeland and graduated from Zeeland High School. I also attended Davenport University. I have lived in Blendon Township for 26 years. My Husband, Rob Overway, has lived in Blendon Township for 53 years. Before being appointed as Clerk in 2015, I was the Deputy Clerk for Blendon Township for 9 years.
 

My husband Rob and I have two grown children, Chelsea and Colton. My daughter, Chelsea, works as a Practice Supervisor over several clinics at Lemmen Holton Cancer Center. My son, Colton, is also a part-time Fireman for Blendon Township and works full time for the City of Wyoming. We are members at Borculo Christian Reformed Church. 

I look forward to serving the community as Clerk of Blendon Township.

      

Treasurer
Greg Golembiewski
(616) 875 - 7707 x 105
I have resided in Blendon Township for 24 years. My wife and I have two sons along with two grandchildren who also reside in Blendon Township. 
 
I have proudly served the residents of Blendon in several capacities since 2007.
I was first appointed Interim Clerk by the Ottawa County Elections Commission. I was appointed to the Compensation Commission in 2008 and served as the Chairperson until 2012.  I was appointed to the office of Treasurer in 2018. I serve as Board Liaison on the Safety Services Committee. I was elected to Vice Chair of the Ottawa County Treasurers Association in 2018. In November 2020, I was re-elected to the office of Treasurer. I was appointed to the Michigan Township Association Board of Directors. My role will be to represent Townships in Ottawa, Kent, and Muskegon counties. 
 
Outside of my responsibilities here as Treasurer, I serve as Chairperson on the Board of Directors at Rivertown Federal Credit Union. I am also a small business owner of a landscape company. 
 
The Treasurer's job is to collect real and personal property taxes, which are then distributed to Hudsonville, Zeeland, and OAISD school districts, district libraries, the State of Michigan, and Ottawa County. Only 10% of the tax revenue stays in Blendon for operating expenses. The Treasurer's office is also responsible for making revenue deposits in approved depositories, investing Township funds in approved investment vehicles, collects delinquent personal property taxes, issues township checks, and has a significant roll in the annual audit. The Treasurer is bonded and insured and serves as a licensed Notary Public.
