Indiana Township Government
At the community, grassroots level, Indiana is served by a Township form of government which is overseen by an elected Township Trustee and Township Board. These officials live in the community which they serve, and are directly responsible to their neighbors, friends and family.
The idea of Township Government is as old as the United States- a grassroots form of government where citizen officials contribute to maintain community values and goals. The duties of the the Township Trustee are diverse, and are set by state law and community needs.
