Duties of the Trustee
A Township Trustee is an elected official in the local government of the U.S. State of Indiana. A township trustee administers a township, which is a political subdivision of a county, and in common with most other state officials, serves a term of four years.
As determined by Indiana law, the trustee is responsible for assisting all township residents who meet certain eligibility requirements and demonstrate that they cannot meet basic needs on their own. The office of the trustee is designed to provide contemporary assistance in emergency situations when a township resident has exhausted other means of assistance. The Trustee will determine eligibility based on the applicant’s/recipient’s total situation. The goal of the Warren Township assistance staff is to help every eligible person within the township in an economical and efficient manner, while supporting and encouraging them to be self-sufficient and treating each person with dignity and respect.
