Owensville Town Council


2016 Council Meetings (link at the bottom of the page)


A 3-member town council governs the Town of Owensville. This council exercises the legislative function of the town. The council acts as the de facto town executive also. There is no limitation on the number of terms a town council member may serve. As mandated by ordinance, the council is elected from districts.

The salaries of the council members are set by ordinance as are all salaries and wages of town officials and employees (IC 36-5-3-2). The council chooses from its members a president who conducts meetings, performs various other executive functions, and is designated as the town executive (IC 36-5-2-7). The members fix the president’s term, but it cannot exceed the term of office for the council member. Council members must reside in the town and the district (precinct) from which they are elected. Their office must be forfeited if that residency is not maintained.

State laws govern the general powers of the council; the methods through which the powers are exercised are left largely to the council to determine by ordinance. The powers of the town council are, in most cases, those powers given to the town government generally.

The town’s appointed officials may be numerous if the councils have chosen to create, by ordinance, any of the various boards, commission and authorities authorized by statute, but usually the major appointments are the town marshal and town attorney.


The current town council members are:


Dwayne Matsel- Board President-Precinct 2-Term 2020-2023

Corey Taylor-Council Member-Precinct 3-Term 2020-2023

Clyde Scott-Council Member-Precinct 1-Term 2020-2023


The next election for town officials (Town Council and Clerk Treasurer) will be held in November 2019, with the elected officials taking office in January 2020. Elections are conducted when any council member and/or clerk treasurer have opposition; if there is no opposition, a Town Election will not be conducted and the current elected officials are reinstated.
