LAKE TOWNSHIP FISCAL OFFICER
The Fiscal Officer, by law, is independent of the Trustees and is responsible for recording township proceedings; keeping accurate records of township financial accounts and transactions, creating statements of receipts and expenditures. The Fiscal Officer's duties also include administering oaths of office, certifying Township affidavits, issuing checks, preparing payrolls, and recording Township boundary changes. The Fiscal Officer assists the Trustees and Department heads in formulating appropriations and a Township budget.
The Township Fiscal Office and the Trustees must work together, particularly in fiscal matters. Their collective goal is to ensure all decisions and actions comply with the laws and regulations governing township governance.
