The authority of Township government is limited to only those specific duties which are designated under Ohio State Law. Unlike cities or villages, Townships do not have the authority to pass law or offer many basic services. Many of the services commonly associated with local government are under the legal jurisdiction of the county, state, or federal government. These include water and sewers, animal control, maintenance of county, state, and U.S. highways, environmental protection and public health. Although they have no legal authority over these services, Township officials can act as community spokesmen to take local problems to the attention of higher officials and assist them with finding solutions. The Liverpool Township Trustees are always available to assist citizens with problems dealing with Liverpool Township, Medina County, State of Ohio, and even the federal government. Regular Trustee Meetings are open to the public and are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month beginning at 7:30PM at the Liverpool Community Center located at 6801 School Street in Valley City. Any Special Meeting of the Trustees will be advertised on page 2 of the Medina County Gazette under the “Public Meetings” header.
Liverpool Township Board of Trustees:
