About Fowler

Fowler is a small town of approximately 2400 residents in Benton County, located about 30 minutes North-West of Lafayette and Purdue University. The town was founded in 1871 by Moses Fowler, an associate of John Purdue. Fowler is governed by a five-person Town Board that performs the functions of both mayor and town council. Each Council member is elected to a staggered term and the Council members choose one of the members to serve as annual president of the board. Legislative business is conducted at the public bi-weekly board meeting, but emergency sessions may be called for urgent matters. Administrative business is conducted daily. Hours are Monday-Thursday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and Friday 8:00 am to 12:00 noon at the town hall by the full time elected Town Clerk-Treasurer , who consults the board as necessary between meetings for administrative matters. The town employs a Deputy Clerk Treasurer and Deputy Billing Clerk plus other full time personnel for management and maintenance of town streets, water systems, sewage collection/treatment and four full time Police Officers.

Our regular board meeting is normally held every 1st and 3rd Monday at 6:00 p.m. (unless changed as advertised in the Benton Review) at the Town Hall, located on 5th Street.
