The trustees may not establish policy for either the township assessor or the highway commissioner.  Trustees do, however, certify tax levies for the township and road district. For the road district, the amount of the levy is determined by the highway commissioner. In their capacity as legislative officers, trustees adopt the annual town budget and appropriation ordinance, the general assistance budget and the road district budget.
