Mifflin Township includes the City of Gahanna and the unincorporated township area of Franklin county, located in the northeastern portion of Franklin County, Ohio. Mifflin Township provides fire service to the City of Gahanna as well as the unincorporated areas of the township.
Your township government consists of three trustees and a township fiscal officer, who are elected for 4-year terms. The terms are staggered so that every two years, either one trustee and the Fiscal officer or two trustees are elected.
The Board of Trustees is the overall governing body of the Township. They decide issues of Township policy and are responsible for all expenditures of Township funds.
The authority of township government is limited to only those specific duties that are delegated by state law. Many services commonly associated with local government are under the legal jurisdiction of the county and state government. Although they do not have direct legal authority over these services, Township officials can act as community spokesmen, while bringing local problems to the attention of higher officials and assisting with solutions to problems. The Mifflin Township officials are always available to assist citizens with problems dealing with the Township, county, and state.
Regular Trustee meetings are held at 3:30 PM on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in the Township meeting hall at 155 Olde Ridenour Rd. Special and/or staff meetings are held as needed, also in the Township meeting hall.
The office hours are 8:00 am to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. See our holiday schedule to the left for a list of office closures.
