  1. This resolution was presented to Mantua Township (Portage County) Trustees at their May 20th meeting.

    Our local forms of governments are Cities, Townships and Villages. Cities and Villages have 'Councils' and Townships have 'Trustees'

  2. Thanks Dawn.... please keep us posted as to how it goes or if there is anyway we can help.
