There are over 1,300 townships in Ohio today. While they all operate under the basic form of township government, they are quite varied in the size of population, annual operating budget, and range of services delivered to township residents. Townships most commonly provide residents services such as road maintenance, cemetery management, police and fire protection, solid waste disposal, and zoning.
Your Wyandot County Townships are governed by a three-member board of trustees, who are elected in November of odd-numbered years to a four-year term beginning on the following January 1st. Two are elected in the year after the presidential election and one is elected in the year before it. There is also an elected Township Fiscal Officer (Township Clerk), who serves a four-year term beginning on April 1 of the year after the election. In the event of a vacancy of the Fiscal Officer or on the Board of Trustees that vacancy would be filled by the remaining trustees.
Your Township are required to hold open public meetings and the public is encouraged to attend.
