Welcome to Olive Township, a community of thriving agriculture, business and residential neighborhoods cultivated from generations of families in the heart of Ottawa County, Michigan.

Founded through the first election of officers on April 6, 1857, Olive Township selected its first Supervisor, Clerk and Treasurer through the vote of 57 attendees. Today, Olive Township has approximately 2,700 registered voters and the ninth Supervisor of record since its founding. Originally named Eastman Township and extending all the way to Lake Michigan as the western border, Olive Township split in 1915, creating current day Port Sheldon Township.

Here is the order the OCRC plows roads in. Never fear, they will eventually get to us all!We have a fleet of just over 60 trucks throughout the county during winter maintenance operations, which run out of our four garage locations: Coopersvile, Grand Haven, Hudsonville and North Holland.

These trucks help us maintain 1,705 miles of county roads, as well as more than 500 lane miles of the state highway system, during the winter snow removal period.

The plowing priorities for our road crew is as follows:

1 – State Trunklines
2 – Multi-lane Primary Roads
3 – Primary Roads
4 – Local Paved Roads
5 – Subdivision Streets
6 – Local Gravel Roads
7 – Dead End Streets and Cul-de-sacs

As always, we appreciate your patience as we work to clean out this network of roads.
