Under state law, township elected officials take office at noon Nov. 20 for their new term. Due to COVID-19 restrictions on indoor gatherings, Friday’s brief ceremony was held outside in front of Township Hall.
The board’s primary responsibilities include developing and approving an annual budget, adopting Township ordinances that promote the health and safety of the community and appointing individuals to serve on boards and committees.
All members are elected to four-year terms. Current members will serve through late November 2024.
