Department of Public Works

The Branch County Department of Public Works was established by action of the Branch County Board of Commissioners on May 11, 1970 under Public Act 185 of 1957, as amended.

The board consists of nine members and meets bi-monthly. Mandated members are the drain commissioner and road commissioners with township representatives and lake residents at-large completing the board.

The Ovid-Kinderhook Waste Water Treatment Plant is located on South Angola Road in Kinderhook Township and services homes on Coldwater and Long Lake and also maintains the cluster system at Bay View.

The Dept. of Public Work’s office is often mistaken for the City of Coldwater’s Board of Public Utilities and their services. They may be contacted at 517-279-9531.
