Duties of the Clerk

The Township Clerk is the keeper of all the records of the township. The Clerk is required to keep accurate records of all meetings of the town board and to maintain those records according to the Illinois Statutes. The Clerk serves as the Freedom of Information Officer for the Township.

Freedom of Information

The Illinois Freedom of Information Act governs public access to and the obtaining of copies of the records of public bodies, including townships. The FOIA requires that a public body make all public records (with specified exceptions) available for public inspection and copying. A person requesting access to or copies of public records must be given written notification of a public body’s decision with regard to such request and access to or copies of requested records, unless such records are exempt – usually within 7 working days and in all cases within 14 working days.
