Trustee Meetings for July 2018 will be July 10th @ 5:30 PM & July 17th @ 5:30 PM


The Sylvania Township Fiscal Department is here to provide you with the information you need.

The township’s fiscal department is responsible for the accounting of all funds which the township receives and pays out. From the township’s payroll to office supplies, the administration of the fiscal department keeps a close eye on township funds, along with the township’s elected fiscal officer. Working with the administrator and other department heads, the fiscal department is responsible for the presentation of the annual budget for approval by the township trustees. It also cautiously invests any available money for additional income. A department philosophy is that consistent small savings township-wide can result in substantial savings in each fiscal year.
