Sarah and Pat are in a position of public trust with the responsibility of helping to set policy and oversee the fiscal health of the township. They are obligated to attend Township Board meetings and to participate in decisions and deliberations. Like the Supervisor, Clerk, and Treasurer, Sarah and Pat are members of the Clark Township Board. They have full voting privileges in governmental decisions falling within the jurisdiction of the Township Board. As trustees, Sarah and Pat do not have statutory duties in addition to those described above. However, trustees are frequently given additional duties and responsibilities as a result of Township Board action. They may be compensated for accepting these additional duties provided compensation is determined prior to engaging in the activities.
