The Ohio Revised Code authorizes townships to be governed by three Trustees. Two trustees are elected at the general election in an odd numbered year for four years and one is elected on the alternate odd year for a four year term. The trustees are charged with both the legislative and administrative duties of the running the Township and its services.
The Board of Trustees serves as both an executive and legislative body. In other words, the Trustees' responsibilities combine those assigned to both the mayor and the council in a city. The legislative authority of the Trustees is limited by Ohio law to something less than that of a City council. Such things as curfews, snow parking bans, etc., must be enacted by the Summit County Council.
The trustees will hold two regular meetings per month on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday at 6:00 p.m, unless otherwise stated. Notification of special meetings will be via facsimile to the local newspapers, posted on the township website, and posted on the town hall door. If anyone else requests notification of a special meeting it will be made via telephone, email, or facsimile. If a request for a special meeting notice is by mail, then the requester shall provide self-addressed, pre-stamped envelopes. Please check our website for the specific dates and times of any meetings or call the Town Hall at 330-666-1853.
