Township Board

Robin Robertson

Rome Township Clerk

The Township Clerk's duties and responsibilities center around statutorily assigned functions, most of which are administrative. Although many of the clerk duties are carefully detailed by State Law and do not permit personal discretion, the clerk is a member of the Township Board with a vote equal to the other members.
