Board of Trustees
The Williams Township Board of Trustees consists of seven members serving four year terms. The officers of the board are designated Supervisor, Clerk, Treasurer, and four Trustees. The township board may also serve in other specific capacities, such as a park or utility board.
The positions are elected every four years at the November general election at the same time as the President of the United States. The term of office for all township officials is four years. The terms commence at 12 p.m. on November 20 following the November general election.
The clerk and the treasurer must each appoint a deputy. The supervisor may appoint a deputy. Deputy township officials are authorized to act as the elected official in the event of the official’s absence, sickness, death or other disability. A deputy may not, however, vote as a member of the township board. With the official’s approval and the consent of the township board, a deputy may assist the elected official at any additional times agreed to by the board and the official. Deputies are not required to be residents of the township, and may be paid compensation as determined by the township board.
