Police Chief Resignation: On June 10, 2024, the Ross Township Board of Trustees received the resignation of Police Chief Burton Roberts.  His decision comes after much reflection and personal consideration.  His letter states that it has been his honor to have served Ross Township since September 2019.  His intentions are to relocate to Arizona after a stellar career of 32 years in law enforcement.  It is with regret for our township and best wishes for Chief Roberts that the Board of Trustees has accepted his letter of resignation to be effective July 5, 2024.  As with the recent appointment of our Fire Chief, the Ross Township Board of Trustees will begin an exhaustive search for our next Police Chief.  We will ensure that he or she will fulfill all of the needs that our fine township deserves.  We are proud of our department and each of the officers that have chosen to establish their careers here and we will work tirelessly to hire a Police Chief that meets all of the qualifications necessary to continue to lead the Police Department in the direction that Chief Roberts has for the past almost 5 years.  We are thankful for the fine staff of officers that Chief Roberts has assembled during his tenure as the department prepares for the next chapter to provide for the safety of all Ross residents.

Ross Township Zoning Regulations Survey

Ross Township is currently working with a planning consultant to assess taking on township control over zoning.  Zoning is the regulation of the land uses and the intensity of development.  Currently, the township has zoning that is administered and enforced by Butler County.  More information on this process can be found at www.envisionross.com but we are seeking input on how the residents and business owners would like those regulations revised to address ongoing needs and concerns within Ross Township.  We are asking that the public take a few minutes of your time to help identify any significant issues or concerns you may have regarding zoning to help craft zoning regulations by completing a short survey.  Please click on the following for a link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EnvisionRoss.  Hard copies of the survey are available at the Ross Township Administration Building, 4055 Hamilton Cleves Rd. from 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
