Wanted: Acme Township trustee

TRAVERSE CITY — Acme Township officials have a new treasurer, but now need to fill an open trustee position.

The board appointed Trustee Amy Jenema, the lone applicant, as township treasurer to replace Connie Collett, who resigned in March. Jenema, a Republican, also will seek to fulfill the remaining two years of Collett’s term in the November general election.

Another appointee, Republican township Clerk Cathy Dye, also will run in November to fulfill the clerk’s term. No other Republican or Democrat filed for the open seats.

Township board members now must appoint a replacement for Jenema’s trustee seat and that person can fill the remaining two years of the term without going before voters.

Supervisor Jay Zollinger said the township is accepting applications for the trustee post. Township officials have not set an application deadline, but Zollinger said they have less than 45 days to appoint a replacement.
