Aurora Township is seeking applicants to fill the remaining term of the late Ken Christy, who served as Township Clerk.

Christy passed away suddenly on March 26, 2016 and is fondly remembered and missed by the board and staff of Aurora Township, said Aurora Township Supervisor Bill Catching.

The Township Clerk is clerk of the town board of trustees and is official keeper of all records except for active General and Emergency Assistance cases. The Clerk is required to keep accurate records of all Town Board meetings and also serves as ex-oficio clerk of the Road District. The clerk must be present for bid openings for both the township and road district.

By state law, candidates to fill this vacancy must be a registered Democrat living in Aurora Township. Interested candidates are asked to submit their resumes with a cover letter to the Aurora Township offices, 80 N. Broadway, Aurora, IL 60505 no later than 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10, 2016. Candidates will be offered an opportunity to speak at the May 12 board meeting at which time the replacement will be selected by the Town Board.
