It’s important to understand that a Township is different from a city or village, and even from a home ruled township. Franklin Township is limited in what rules and regulations it can enforce by the Ohio Revised Code. We will hear public opinion and redraft any language multiple times before a final decision is made.
After considerable thought and seeking counsel from the governmental subject matter experts enforcing our resolutions, the Franklin Township Board of Trustees have concluded to not pursue a noise resolution. Please understand Franklin Township has limited statutory authority. The State of Ohio has granted different policing powers within jurisdictional areas of cities, villages and home-rule townships per the Ohio Revised Code authorities. This was a challenging and thorough decision process, we greatly appreciate your understanding.
