Can a public meeting agenda be changed during a meeting?

Generally, yes. For regular meetings, a member of the township board can move to amend the agenda to add a business item for discussion or action. For special meetings, however, the business to be discussed must be limited to the item(s) provided in the notice of the special meeting, unless all members of the township board are present. See MCL 41.72a (4) and Attorney General Opinion No. 6821 (1994).
