The responsibilities of the Sheridan Township treasurer:
By statute, the treasurer is required to receive and take charge of all funds belonging to the township or which are required by law to be paid into the township treasury, and to pay over and account for the funds according to law or township board decision. (MCL 41.76)
The treasurer must keep tidy order of all tax and financial records for the Township.
The treasurer should maintain a uniform system of accounting as promulgated by the state treasurer and should keep accurate accounting for each township fund so that he or she can accurately report on the status of those funds.
The treasurer should notify the board if cash balances in any fund become overdrawn or if overdrawing appears imminent.
The treasurer must, however, pay out funds on the order of the township board notwithstanding any disagreement concerning the disbursements, provided the disbursement is not clearly a mistake or illegal.
