Board Information

The Township Board sets government policy for Oceola Township and is the elected local legislative body of the Township.

Prior to each meeting, agendas are available in the Oceola Township Clerk's office at 1577 North Latson Road. To have an item put on the agenda, please submit it to the Clerk's office the Wednesday one week prior to the board meeting.

Board Responsibilities

The Oceola Township Board consists of the Supervisor, Clerk, Treasurer, and four Trustees. They adopt an annual budget that determines the scope of Township services. The Board also adopts both general and zoning ordinances to protect the community's health, safety, and welfare. They oversee all Township employees, programs, and services.

Board Meetings

Regular meetings are for conducting Township government business. Actions range from paying bills to authorizing purchases. There is a public comment section listed in each meeting agenda. The public is welcome to address comments or questions to the Board at these "Call to the Public" sections. While questions normally will not be answered at that meeting, the Board will make every attempt to provide answers to the public's questions.

Democracy

Democracy is government by the people. While the Township Board is lawfully responsible for governing the Township, the Board needs to hear the perspective and views of the residents. Keeping abreast of Township issues and providing your viewpoint is not only essential to Township success, it is your responsibility.
