duties and responsibilities are statutorily assigned functions, most
of which are administrative. The clerk is a member of the township board
and votes on all matters that come before the township board.
In addition to numerous auxiliary duties, Michigan law requires the township clerk to carry out three major responsibilities involving township record keeping, financial operations and elections. The Clerk also maintains custody of all township records, meeting minutes, book of oaths, ordinance books, general ledger, prepares warrants for township checks, and financial statements. Maintaining voter registration files and conducting elections are also duties of the Clerk.
The Clerk must appoint a deputy. The township board determines the deputys wage. In the absence, sickness, death or disability of the clerk, the deputy possesses the powers and performs the duties of the clerk; however, the deputy does not have a vote on the township board.
