Statutory Duties of Township Clerk per Michigan Legislature

What does the Bloomfield Township Clerk do?

CURRENTLY, The Township Clerk:
1. Shall have custody of all the records, books and papers
2. Shall file and safely keep all certificates of oaths
3. Records, books, and papers shall be kept

Question: Why is the Bloomfield IT Department with such computer documentation of 'records and papers' under the authority and supervision of the Supervisor rather than the Clerk?



Bloomfield Township has an IT Department ~
It should be under the authority and reporting to the Clerk

BUT it is currently under the Supervisor.


Bloomfield Township has a Finance Department ~
It should be under the authority and reporting to the Clerk
BUT it is currently under the Supervisor.


MICHIGAN LEGISLATURE, The Township Clerk:
1. Shall open and keep an account w ith the treasurer
   (debit and credit the dated financial amounts much like
    a checkbook)
2. Shall open and keep a separate account with each fund
    belonging to the township
   (debit and credit the dated financial amounts much like
    a checkbook)
3. Shall be responsible for the detailed accounting records
    of the township utilizing the uniform chart of accounts
    prescribed by the state treasurer
4. Shall prepare and maintain the journals and ledgers,
    including assets, liabilities, fund equities, revenues,
    and expenditures for each fund

Question: Why are these duties not currently being
         performed by our Bloomfield Township Clerk?

Question: If these finances are being maintained under
        the Supervisor, where are the 'Checks and Balances'
        to safeguard against mistakes or misappropriations
        of our tax dollars?

IT'S KERN'S TURN

      Criticism is easy but in itself it does not fix things. Change does! Change is hard yet necessary throughout life, and it is how we enable and adapt to change that we reap benefits. I do believe new leadership is essential for our Blooomfield Township Board of Trustees, and I am honored to be running to be our new Bloomfield Township Clerk. It is a good fit and I plan to do a great job!
       I consider myself selfish in that I receive great pleasure from giving to and helping others. Family health challenges and losses have given me a perspective on life. It is short, and the best way to honor a loved-one is to give your best to the fullest and have fun along the way! I have financial, research, and organizational skills, talents and experience to share with our community. "It's time for Susie Kern" to be our new Bloomfield Township Clerk.
It's Kern's Turn!
