Township Trustee


“A team player wanting to help the township perform at optimum levels.

 An inquiring mind is a plus.”


The township board of trustees is the legislative branch of township government. Each single township has four trustees and a supervisor that comprise the board. Each board member elected at large within the township, has one vote on all issues before the township board. In their capacity as the legislative branch, trustees adopt the annual town budget and appropriation ordinance, the general assistance budget and the road district budget. Trustees are responsible for approving all township expenses and auditing bills submitted for payment by the highway commissioner.
