The Trustees were shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of long-time Trustee Bob Stephenson who served the Township faithfully since 2009.


The Trustees following Ohio Revised Code had 30 days in which to appoint a replacement to fill Mr. Stephenson's seat. 

5 residents requested to be considered for the seat.  Of the 5 candidates who asked to be considered, the Trustees appointed Charles "Randy" Elson who has 28 years of Trustee experience and came in 2nd during the last Trustee election.  We thank Randy for agreeing to serve out the remainder of Mr. Stephenson's term.
