NILES CHARTER TOWNSHIP — Niles Charter Township has a new clerk.

Dan Pulaski was sworn in as township clerk Friday afternoon in Niles Township Hall. Pulaski, who has served the community as a trustee since 2016, is moving to the clerk position vacated this week by Terry Eull, who resigned Monday to enjoy retirement.

“I have a great support group,” Pulaski said. “(Eull) gave me as much information as he could and (Supervisor Marge Durm-Hiatt) is a former clerk and she’s going to be helping me out as well as the deputy clerk. They know everything about running the township.” 

Eull retires after more than 45 years of serving both the City of Niles and Niles Township. He has worked as assessor of both Niles Township and the city of Niles before serving as township supervisor from 1993 to 1998. Eull spent 13 years as Niles city administrator before spending the last 12 years as township clerk.

Pulaski is looking forward to helping the township move forward with its current projects, which include the expansion of the department of public works building, the renovation and expansion of the current township hall, the planned Community Park improvements made possible by a DNR Spark Grant and the November general election.

In other business, the township approved a $295,450 bid from Midstates Construction of Elkhart, Ind. for the expansion of the department works building on Bell Road, next to the township hall. The DPW building has served the community for years and lacks the space and the infrastructure to meet the growing demands and needs of staff.

The project will be funded using American Rescue Plan Act funds.
