The Eureka Township Board of Supervisors is the governing body of the township. Based on Minnesota statute, the board of supervisors has “charge of all town affairs not committed to other officers by law” (Minnesota Statute § 366.01, subd. 1). In practice, supervisors are responsible for establishing, implementing, and enforcing policy for the township on a broad range of issues.
Supervisors are elected for three-year terms (unless filling a vacancy) by direct ballot of eligible voters. The town board chair is elected by majority vote of the board of supervisors.
The board of supervisors holds its regular meeting at 7:00 pm on the second Monday of every month at the Eureka Town Hall (unless Monday is a state holiday, in which case meetings are delayed until the following Tuesday). For the date of the next scheduled meeting, consult the township calendar.
