Welcome to Trenton Township:
Governed by the Community, For the Community

A Governance That Listens
Trenton Township is governed by a three-member board of trustees, dedicated to representing the community's best interests. These trustees are elected in November of odd-numbered years for a four-year term that commences on January 1st of the following year. The timing of their election is strategically staggered: two are elected the year after a presidential election, while one is elected in the year leading up to it. This structure ensures continuity and balance in the governance of our township.

Fiscal Responsibility

Alongside our board of trustees, an elected township fiscal officer plays a vital role in maintaining financial transparency and accountability. The fiscal officer serves a four-year term that starts on April 1st of the year following their election, which is held in November of the year before a presidential election. Should there be any vacancies in the fiscal officership or the board of trustees, they are promptly filled by the remaining trustees, ensuring the smooth functioning of our local government.

Committed to Public Services
When it comes to public services, Trenton Township does not compromise. Emergency medical services are provided by the highly trained and efficient Delaware County EMS, which is funded by Delaware County sales tax. Fire protection is provided by B.S.T.&G. Fire District, funded by property taxes. We are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our residents, 24/7.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about Trenton Township's services, community events, and how you can get involved in shaping the future of our community.
