Boards and Committees

State law authorizes Ohio townships to operate under a basic form of government and perform a wide variety of functions. Townships most commonly provide residents with services such as road maintenance, cemetery management, police and fire protection, and zoning. To facilitate these functions the township uses boards and commissions.

Board of Trustees

Pierce Township government services are run by a three-person Board of Trustees and a Fiscal Officer, each elected by residents to staggered four-year terms. Pierce Township provides professional full-time PoliceFireZoning, and Service Department services.
