Does a "Town Marshal" answer to the "County Sheriff?"?

I understand that marshals are used for various kinds of law enforcement, but I'm referring to a "Town Marshal" that has been elected as a police officer of a small community, with similar powers and duties to that of a sheriff. Does the Marshal still have to work in collation with the County Sheriff?... show more I understand that marshals are used for various kinds of law enforcement, but I'm referring to a "Town Marshal" that has been elected as a police officer of a small community, with similar powers and duties to that of a sheriff. Does the Marshal still have to work in collation with the County Sheriff? Is he required to report to the Sheriff, say in the case of a murder in his town? What would be the procedures?
