Washington Township is governed by four elected officals, three trustees and one fiscal officer. The trustees are governed by the Ohio Revised Code and therefore have limited authority. The trustees are responsible for the township roads and right-of-ways, for operating and maintaining the local Volunteer Fire Department and Beechwood Park and Zoning.
Washington township's population continues to remain just under 5,000 people. The residents of Washington township have generously supported three levies in the last few years, one for the fire deprtment, one for the road department and a general levy.
The Trustees also have a a contract with Stark-Summit Ambulance service. Under the terms of the contract residents of Washington township will not be charged for emergency service not covered by their individual insurance provider.
The Township also provides a 40 yard dumpster for residents once a month at the township garage. Residents can purchase an annual permit for $40 dollars at the beginning of the year. The dumpster is here the last Friday of the month from 12:00pm-5:00pm and the following Saturday from 8:00am - 12:00pm.
The administration office is located at 5789 Beechwood Ave. Alliance, OH 44601 and is open Monday through Friday 8:30am to 2:30 pm. The phone number for the Office is 330-821-9834.
The Washington Township Historical Society meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Township Administration building, at 7:00pm. More information on the Historical Society can be found at www.washingtontwphistoricalsociety.org.
