Iowa residents living in rural areas outside of incorporated cities rely on their local township government to provide vital functions such as fire protection.  Townships are also responsible for public cemeteries and resolving fence disputes.  In addition, townships may choose to provide other services such as emergency medical service, township halls, parks, libraries, community centers, and playgrounds. 

The township trustees and clerks are the locally elected officials who are responsible for seeing that those services are delivered effectively and economically.  Their job is important and they represent the heart of local government for township residents.  Yet many trustees and clerks assume their jobs with little or no training and experience.  

The election of township officers takes place at the general election on ballots which shall not reflect a nominee's political affiliation.  A person seeking election as a township officer shall file an affidavit of candidacy with the county commissioner of elections.  Contact the Floyd County Auditor's office for more information if you are interested in serving in this capacity.
