Brookfield Township Trustees are accepting letters of interest from residents who may be interested in fulfilling the anticipated vacancy in the Board of Trustees by the resignation of Trustee Ron Haun.  Those who wish to be considered for the position will need to submit a letter to the Board of Trustees.  Letters may be mailed to the administration building at 6844 Strimbu Dr. or dropped off at the administration building during normal business hours (M-F from 8 am – 4 pm).  Please submit your letter in a sealed envelope and mark the outside of the envelope “Letter of interest for Trustee position”.  Candidates wishing to be considered for the position must be at least 18 years of age, a resident of Brookfield Township (for at least 30 days), and registered to vote (registered for at least 30 days).  Brookfield Township Trustees will not be responsible for any letters mailed that are not received.

Township trustees have discretionary, executive and judicial functions. They may, at their discretion, adopt certain regulations as allowed by state law. For instance, they may regulate engine noise and vehicle parking, and noise from a bar that serves liquor. Trustees may establish regulations for fire and police protection. The township trustees are the executive officers of the township. They are responsible for appropriating township funds, and they are the township taxing and purchasing authority. They hold title to and are responsible for the physical property of the township. They may own such facilities as parks and cemeteries. Township trustees may hire personnel and enter into contracts as necessary to perform their duties.
