Department of Public Works
In 1915, Samuel Keur was elected as the first Highway Commissioner for the Township of Muskegon.  There was very little responsibility with the position based on today's standards, but over the years, as the Township grew and with the advent of motor vehicles, the Township gradually put into service road maintenance equipment.  The department primarily did dirt road grading, oiling, and snow plowing of secondary streets that the county Road Commission did not have manpower or equipment to get to as soon as our citizens desired, especially after World War II in the late 40's.

After World War II, a program for establishing parks and playgrounds was started until today there exists seven parks including Softball World, Parslow, Quarter-Oak, Wesley, Jolman, Evanston, Riverside and Buel Parks.  With the exception of Softball World, these parks are maintained by public works employees.  Recreation programs are conducted in cooperation with Reeths-Puffer and Orchard View Schools.
