Washington Township is governed by a board composed of three elected trustees. The trustees adopt resolutions; approve the annual budget, payrolls and bills; set policy and provide general direction for the operation of the township.
"Dublin/Washington Township is a great place to live. I enjoy the small town feel, where you know your neighbors, you look out for each other, and children can play safely."
