The duties of a township trustee include:
Providing for fire protection and ambulance service in unincorporated areas of the county.
Providing for poor relief and burial of the indigent.
Maintaining cemeteries and burial grounds.
Resolving fence disputes.
Investigating claims of livestock killed by dogs.
Controlling weeds and underbrush.

The trustee and a three-member Township Board are all elected to four year terms. Duties of the board include adopting the annual budget, serving as a board of finance and approving township contracts. In January of each year, the trustee presents to the board an annual report showing the receipts, expenditures, investments and debts of the township. The approved report is then published in local papers for public inspection.
