What does the Town Clerk do?
The Town Clerk is primarily an administrative position charged with keeping records and publishing statutorily required notices. The position is central to government transparency because the Town Clerk records and maintains the minutes for each meeting of the Township Board and the Annual Town Meeting. While serving as Clerk of the Township Board, the Clerk conducts the roll call votes needed for approval of the spending of Township funds.
Tax levies, budgets, and other ordinances approved by vote of the Township Board are recorded and filed by the Town Clerk with the appropriate authority, often times the County Clerk. Statute requires that the Town Clerk publish meeting dates, times, and topics for all meetings of the Township Board.
The only matter on which a Town Clerk may vote is when the office of a Township Official (Supervisor, Assessor, Trustee) is vacated, and the Township Board votes in a tie to make an appointment, then the Town Clerk is authorized to cast a tie-breaking vote for appointment.
The Town Clerk may also offer perspectives, policies, and opinions which are independent from other Offices of the Township.
Additionally, the Town Clerk is the local election authority for Township elections.
What services does the Office of the Town Clerk provide?
Meetings of the South Rock Island Township Board:
The Township Board meets on the last Monday of every month except for in December.
All regularly scheduled meetings start at 5:00 pm, at the Office of the Town Clerk, South Rock Island Township, 1019 27th Avenue, Rock Island, Illinois.
Pursuant to the Open Meetings Act, the South Rock Island Township Board adopts the schedule of regular meeting dates for the upcoming calendar year at the preceeding November Township Board meeting. South Rock Island Township may schedule other special meetings, emergency meetings, and reconvened meetings, as deemed necessary, and as allowed by the Open Meetings Act, in addition to any amendments or other modifications of the regular meeting date schedule.
In the event that a Special Meeting is needed, there are four ways it can be called.
Completed petitions for a Special Meeting are submitted to the Town Clerk for verification, then the Clerk gives 48-hour notice to the Board of Trustees and the public of the meeting place, time, and topic(s).
