The duties of the Trustee are to care for the poor with the most economical means available. The Trustee is required to see that the necessary needs of an individual or family are met. The Trustee is to also oversee the burial of the indigent when no other means of payment are available and maintains those cemeteries in the township which have been abandoned. They are listed below.
The Perry Township Trustee's Office provides a service unlike any other unit of government called Township Assistance. Township Assistance is a program that allows residents of Perry Township, who are suffering financial hardship, the opportunity to apply for relief of their need(s) for shelter, utilities and school uniforms. Many refer to this type of service as Temporary Assistance because it is provided as a temporary or short-term remedy. Those individuals and families who apply for this assistance must prove that they are unable to provide for their needs through personal effort.
In Perry Township we facilitate partnerships with local churches and charitable organizations to assist our efforts in providing services to those in need. Perry Township strives to provide assistance in the most economical means possible. The help of our community partners, supplements the use of available tax money and fills more needs than we are able to provide.
