Laketown Township has a new electrical inspector.

Jeff Nyboer brings almost 30 years of experience to the role held for 25 years by Gordon Bosch who recently retired.

“It was always a pleasure to work with the staff at Laketown Township,” Bosch said.

Bosch will be assisting Nyboer when he is busy or on vacation.

“We thank Gord for his 25 years of service to the residents of Laketown,” said township Manager Al Meshkin.

New inspector

Nyboer has been in the electrical industry since 1995.

“In 2005 I bought out the contractor I was working for and have been blessed to do that until the present time,” he said.

He has been an electrical inspector since the fall of 2023.

“I live locally here in the Hamilton area, so I am well connected to the community and am looking forward to making some more lasting relationships with those I will work with,” he said.

Nyboer is also the electrical inspector for the townships of Fillmore, Saugatuck, Park, Port Sheldon, and Olive.

The electrical inspector is contracted to perform inspections for electrical permits issued by the township. 

“These include both residential and commercial projects, and range from remodels, repairs, new construction, and a variety of utilities including solar,” said Michelle Sall, Laketown Township Community Development Director. “The inspector ensures that the work performed is done correctly and meets code.”

In 2023, the township issued 129 electrical permits and had about 240 inspections, according to Sall.

Nyboer can be reached at (616) 610-2897 and through email at jnyboerbti@gmail.com.
