Purpose of Ordinances
Below is a list of the codified Township ordinances. An ordinance is a law passed by the municipal government. The
ordinances are administered by Township officials for the purpose of protecting private property from land use conflict or
other threats to public health, safety, and welfare. Some ordinances, like zoning, plan future growth in ways that meet
other community needs. Finally, some ordinances are required by state law to establish volunteer boards, or use
Township funds for fire protection and other public purposes.
