By statute, the township treasurer is required to receive and take charge of all funds belonging to the township or which are required by law to be paid into the township treasury, and to pay over and account for the funds according to law or township board decision.
The treasurer is the township’s agent for collecting taxes and must deposit all township funds in banks or depositories approved by the township board.
The treasurer must keep a true account of the receipts and expenditures of all funds in a separate book provided for that purpose by the township. Payments authorized by the township board shall be paid by the treasurer on an order signed by the township clerk.
