DCTA celebrates Ohio Township Day

DARKE CO. – On Feb. 1, Darke County Township Association (DCTA), representing 20 townships, joined Ohio’s other township and residents to celebrate Ohio Township Day. The day was set aside to recognize the hard work and dedication of township trustees and fiscal officers and to promote grassroots government. As the first form of government in Ohio, the township remains one of the most efficient and economical government institutions in the state. The 1308 townships across the state serve nearly 45-percnet of Ohio’s population. Townships provide many services to their residents – road maintenance, fire protection, cemetery, zoning/land use planning, and providing parks and recreation are a small sample of a township’s responsibilities.

Informational brochures and a video on the functions and history of township government can be requested by local junior and senior high schools for use in their government classes to help further education students about township government.

The DCTA holds quarterly meetings and has two additional special functions each year. Anyone interested in local government is invited to attend.

For more information, contact Dave Brewer, president; Ed Huff Jr., vice-president; Debbie Kuhnle, secretary; or any township trustee.
