A Trustee does more than cutting brush, patching a hole or removing snow. All of those are done by each of us, sometimes late at night. But did you know we apply for grants, attend government meetings, work with our local Prosecutor on legal issues, manage taxpayers dollars, vote on issues within the county and contact Legislators on laws that will effect townships.
We take pride on representing Tiffin Township residents with all of these items listed above.
Experience with government funding, laws and grants are just a few things that are never seen by the residents but essential to the functions of the duty of Trustee and are extremely important to the progress and growth of our Tiffin Township.
We want to say "Thank You" for your continued support.
Tiffin Township clean up day was a success. Thank you to all of the residents who brought in their junk and filled two dumpsters. Clean up day is October 22, 8am-3pm.
We are expanding the cemetery and have taken down the fence and new lots are marked. Please stop out and look at the new section and contact a trustee if interested in purchasing.
