Elected Officials and Board Meetings

Oak Park Township is governed by an independently elected Township Board of Trustees. The Township Board consists of the Township Supervisor and four Trustees, elected at large from the township. The Clerk and Assessor are elected simultaneously with the Board. The Assessor does not vote. The Township Clerk votes only in the case of a tie vote to fill a vacancy in a township office.

All are welcome to board meetings.  Board documents may be found here:  https://oakparktownship.org/board-agendas-finances/.
