GENERAL LAW TOWNSHIP SUPERVISOR
The supervisor is frequently the first official contacted about any township business or complaint and is often perceived as the township spokesperson. It must be realized, however, that the authority of the supervisor is limited to that provided by statute or delegated by the township board. The image of the township and its ability to satisfy the needs of its citizens and property owners rests largely on the supervisor’s knowledge of township government and how it can accomplish these purposes legally, fairly and with the least amount of dissension and friction as possible. The ability to mediate such dissension and friction in a rational and logical manner and in the interest of good township development and service is a goal to which every supervisor should aspire.
