The Clay Township government operates under the direction of elected members to the Clay Township Board of Trustees and a fiscal officer. Clay Township also has an elected Fiscal Officer who is responsible to oversee and safeguard the township funds. Residents have adopted Limited Self-Government, which allows trustees to enact resolutions, similar to city ordinances, provided they do not conflict with state laws or a list of specific exemptions.
CITIZENS REQUESTING TO SPEAK BEFORE THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES WILL BE GIVEN A 5 MINUTES TIME PERIOD AND MUST GIVE THEIR NAME, ADDRESS AND SIGN THE REGISTRY. THIS ALLOWS THE FISCAL OFFICER TO PROPERLY RECORD THEIR COMMENTS.
THE TRUSTEES MAY ALSO TAKE UP AND ACT UPON MATTERS WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE TRUSTEES OR FISCAL OFFICER AT THE TIME OF THE PREPARATION OF THIS AGENDA.
