Gov. DeWine mandated that all public schools close throughout the State of Ohio for a period of three weeks, beginning on Monday, March 16. In addition to that announcement, the Governor stressed the importance of “social distancing”. More specifically, the Governor ordered that group gatherings of more than 100 people are prohibited within the State of Ohio until further notice.
Given these mandates, the Township Trustees, in consultation with senior leadership staff, has implemented precautionary restrictions in line with the Governor’s Order. This includes temporarily suspending certain events and meetings within township buildings and facilities, such as:
- The Senior Center will be closed and all programming and activities canceled.
- Non-essential meetings
- Memorial Day Ceremony and Picnic (May 25th) CANCELED
- June 13th Summer Concert CANCELED
- July 18th Summer Concert CANCELED
- August 15th Heritage Day CANCELED
This situation is evolving quickly and we will continue to communicate all updates with you as quickly as possible. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
