Township Government

Ohio townships are political subdivisions of the State. Township government has only those powers granted to it by the Legislature. In Ohio, the township predates our state government. Sizes and shapes of townships were determined by congressional acts, which established various land grants. As the Ohio Territory became popular it was only natural that townships should become the basic unit of local government. Townships in Ohio are the most financially prudent of all forms of government.

The Township’s business is conducted by three elected part-time Trustees and a Fiscal Officer, who are elected in odd-numbered years for four-year terms, with two seats becoming eligible for re-election every two years.

Trustees have legislative authority in the Township and are responsible for hiring employees and developing employee policies and procedures. By law the Trustees are responsible for the maintenance of the township roads and cemeteries, however over the years their oversight has grown to provide services including law enforcement, storm water, sanitary sewers, zoning and park land development.

Employees of the Township, from office administration to public works to zoning, are hired by the Trustees. Since Canfield Township has been the fastest growing Township in Mahoning County for several years, in 2011 the Trustees created the position of Township Administrator/Road Superintendent to better serve the needs of the residents and to oversee the day-to-day operations as directed by the Trustees.

The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining 124 Township roads equating to 35 miles, catch basin maintenance and repair, storm sewer cleaning, snow plowing, grass cutting, cemetery upkeep and burials, as well as any other maintenance concerns to better safeguard our community.

The Zoning Inspector is responsible for ensuring that the Township’s regulations are adhered to by residents and businesses alike. Her job entails writing, recording and filing all permits, working with the Zoning Commission to update zoning regulations, and overseeing the Zoning Board of Appeals cases.

The Fiscal Officer is part-time and by law independent of the Trustees; yet, they work closely together. They must keep an accurate record of all Township accounts and transactions, and it is the responsibility of the Fiscal Officer to comply strictly with the legal requirements of their duties, to establish and practice rules for efficient management of the Township’s Fiscal Officer’s office and to follow good accounting practices in maintaining records and accounts.
