MONCLOVA TOWNSHIP’S ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES
Monclova Township’s form of government provides for four elected positions. Three trustees are the primary decision-makers, entrusted with the legislative functions of the township. This includes the primary categories of roads, fire protection, cemeteries, zoning, police protection, and waste disposal. Legal requirements for the duties of the Board of Trustees and Fiscal Officer are set forth in the Ohio Revised Code.
The trustees represent the community based on their intimate knowledge of their constituents, the needs of the area, and their personal dedication. This enables our township government to offer more personal service than any other unit of government. The most important thing to remember is that the trustees are here to serve you.
The Township’s Fiscal Officer is the township’s fiduciary representative. Your Fiscal Officer is charged with the main duties of preparing financial statements, maintaining the general ledger, preparing warrants and payments, and being the custodian of township records.
