The Burton township officials consist of three Trustees and a Fiscal Officer, who are elected to four-year staggered terms. The terms are staggered, so that every two years either one Trustee and the Fiscal Officer or two Trustees are up for election.
The Township Fiscal Officer is responsible for all township accounts and transactions.
The Trustees are elected to administer the affairs of township government as the representatives of the people and they hold their offices in trust for the people of the Township.
The Trustees welcome residents to attend governmental meetings held at 7:30 pm on the first and third Monday of each month at the Administration Building, located on Rapids Road.
Like any organization or unit of government, township government is what the people make it. Your personal knowledge of the officials who administer your township government and of the problems they face will make them more valuable to you. Fortunately, getting to know more about your township is simple. Your trustees and fiscal officer are your neighbors. You’ll find them eager to discuss your problems and ideas as they welcome your interest and encourage your questions.
