Nov 20, 2020
Northville Township welcomes four new members to its Board of Trustees (BoT), who were sworn in this morning by Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Thomas C. Cameron and 52-1 Novi District Judge Travis Reeds, for a four-year term beginning today. The event resembled a homecoming for new Supervisor Mark Abbo, who previously held the post from 2000-2012. Prior to that he was a Township Trustee for eight years. Since then, he has worked as Wayne County’s chief financial officer and the Wayne County Commission’s fiscal director. Abbo, a certified public accountant, also has more than 30 years of private sector experience. Roger Lundberg is taking on the role of Township Clerk. He spent 35 years as an engineer in product development and as a director at Chrysler/DaimlerChrysler. He also serves as president of the Northville Hills Golf Club Homeowners Association. He holds an engineering degree and a master’s degree in business administration, both from the University of Michigan. The new Treasurer is Jason Rhines. He owned a small business for 25 years, a building restoration company, and is a licensed residential builder. He graduated from Schoolcraft College and participated in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses entrepreneurship program with curriculum designed by Babson College. He previously served on a non-profit board, raising funds for various charities. Judge Reeds is a longtime friend of Rhines and wanted to personally administer the oath of office to him. The final BoT newcomer is Cynthia Jankowski, a member of the Northville Public Schools Board of Education since 2012. In that role, she was a liaison to the Landfill Working Group. She also is a Northville Historical Society Member. Jankowski holds an accounting degree, has more than 30 years experience as a paralegal in litigation and real estate. Jankowski joins Trustee incumbents: Scott Frush, Mindy Herrmann and Christopher Roosen. “Northville Township residents have picked this enthusiastic team to lead our community and we’re excited to partner with them to shape its future,” said Northville Township Manager and Director of Public Safety Todd Mutchler.

History Of The Township

The Charter Township of Northville is a vibrant, safe and attractive community. The perfect place to live, work and play! Northville Township was established in 1898 and became a Charter Township in 1985. What was once a quaint farming region is today a thriving residential and business community. Throughout our community, signs of our rural heritage still exist, including rambling farm houses on unpaved roads, traditional neighborhoods and an open landscape. Today, Northville Township's master plan allows for planned growth that preserves wooded areas and open space, and protects our waterways.
