Washington Township


           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 $30 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 12:30 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.

Over the next three weeks, we will be installing smart meters on homes and businesses in the Washington Township community. Not all meters may be installed in this first phase so if there are questions relating to individual homes or businesses you can contact one of the below phone numbers or visit the website for additional information.

This effort is part of a three year investment approved by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to modernize the electric distribution system in Ohio with advanced automation equipment, real-time voltage controls and the installation of 700,000 smart meters. This step toward a more modernized electric system will enable automated meter readings and may enhance our ability to respond to outages faster and more efficiently. On the day of the installation, an installer will call the resident to let them know they are installing the meter meter. If they are unable to make contact prior to installation date, we will attempt the exchange if the meter is not located inside the premises. In order to adhere to social distancing guidelines, we will no longer be leaving door hangers once our visit is complete.

Please be aware that all of our installers will be carrying a photo identification badge from FirstEnergy. In addition, FirstEnergy installers will have FirstEnergy uniforms and trucks. Wellington Energy installers will wear a brown uniform with a Wellington logo and their white trucks will have Wellington Energy and FirstEnergy logos. If an installer cannot show an identification badge, or if the customer has a concern about that person’s identity, please call Wellington Energy at 888-895-1044.

Be assured that the smart meter technology being implemented has been rigorously tested and proven by manufacturers to be accurate, safe and secure in systems throughout the country. If you have any questions about these installation, please call Wellington Energy at 888-895-1044.
