Algonquin Township Board

The Township trustees are responsible for certifying tax levies for the township and for the road district. The Highway Commissioner determines the amount of the road district levy.

The Board is also responsible for adopting the annual budget and appropriation ordinance for the Town, General Assistance, and the Road and Bridge funds. The Trustees approve all town expenses and audit bills submitted for payment by the Highway Commissioner. The Trustees are elected every four years.
