Elected Officials

In 1804, the elected officials of a township consisted of three trustees, a clerk, two overseers of the poor and a sufficient number of highway supervisors, in addition to justices of the peace and constables. A township treasurer and assessor were later added. In the early years of statehood, Ohio township government cared for the poor, maintained the roads and preserved the peace.

Townships today are responsible for fire and provide Fire/EMS, police protection, parks and recreation, zoning, cemeteries, waste disposal, maintaining roads and more.

Elected officials fill their roles on a part-time basis; however, their intimate knowledge of their community, its needs and its citizens enables them to offer more personal service than any other unit of government.
