The township supervisor is the township’s agent for transacting all legal business, and is considered the chief administrative officer.
The supervisor is the moderator of any township meeting, with the right and duty to regulate the proceedings of any meeting, including deciding questions of order.
The supervisor is the chief assessing officer of the township, responsible for assessing property values within the township at 50 percent of its true cash value. Even if he is not a certified assessor, he is still responsible for this duty. Any other assessors required to perform the function are subordinate to the supervisor.
The supervisor also acts as the secretary of the Board of Review and must keep a record of the proceedings of the board and all changes made in the township assessment roll.
