Township Trustees

Ohio Revised Code 505 establises the duties and responsiblities of township Board of Trustees in the state of Ohio.

The Board of Trustees consists of three members who are elected during general elections in off-numbered years for terms of four years commencing on the first day in January after their election. Two trustees are elected during general elections the year after presidential elections and one trustee is elected in the year following a state gubernatorial election.

As the executive officers of Jackson Township, they are responsible for funds appropriation, taxing and purchasing for Township needs and they hold title to the physical property of the township. The Board of Trustees also are enpowered with discretionary, judicial and executive functions. They are permitted by state law to adopt regulations for fire and police protection and other regulations as may be deemed necessary for the welfare of the Township. The Board of Trustees also settle line fence disputes among township residents and adopt zoning amendments from recommendations made by the Township Zoning Commission. Trustees may enter into contracts and hire personnel as needed in the performance of their duties to the well being of the Township.   Our Board of Trustees consist of Bill Wiederhold, Chair; Joe Speeg, Vice-Chair; and Hal Herron.

Regularly scheduled Trustee meetings are held on the first and third Mondays of each month at 7:00 P.M. in the Jackson Township Community Center located at 3263 U.S. Route 50, Williamsburg, Ohio.  These meeting are open to the Public. However, the second meeting of each month is a "Trustee Working Session." Residents are welcome to attend but if an attendee wishes to speak at this meeting he or she must call the Township Clerk and ask to be placed on the agenda.
