Based on Governor Mike DeWine’s direction earlier today in regards to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, effective immediately, the township will be operating with limited, non-essential, on-site personnel for the next three weeks until April 6, 2020.

During the three week period the following changes will be in place:


  • Township fire stations will be closed to the public and unable to be reserved for events
