BEAVER TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES: RONALD KAPPLER, TED LYDA, LARRY WEHR

TOWNSHIP FISCAL OFFICER: RICHARD LOTZE

 




 Administration

The township form of government is the oldest and most efficient in the United States. Townships are even older than the state form of government. Nowhere else do residents have such direct access to those who manage the services and finances of a community.

The three Township Trustees and the Township Fiscal Officer are elected to four year terms in nonpartisan elections. Trustees are responsible for the overall administration of township services including fire and police protection, zoning, roads, and parks. The Township Fiscal Officer handles all financial matters and is the keeper of all township records.

 

 

 

 

 Zoning

The objectives of the zoning department are to serve the community as a whole by promoting public health, safety, and morals through orderly comprehensive development of the community. Zoning provides a legal means of carrying out a responsible plan for physical growth and development by designating districts which provide for the orderly use of residential, commercial and industrial areas. By encouraging the most appropriate use of lands zoning helps to protect property value and maintain the highest and best use for all properties.

 

 

 
 Road Department

 

The Beaver Township Road Department is responsible for maintaining over 30 miles of township roadway. The township does not maintain any state or county roadways, such as SR7 (Market Street) and Sharrott Road. Routine maintenance includes snow and ice removal, spot road repairs, ditch cleaning, installation of culvert pipe, sign installations and repairs, roadside mowing, pavement markings, and road resurfacing.
