Report Failing Sewage Systems

When household sewage treatment systems fail, untreated sewage is discharged into the environment. Untreated wastewater from a failing system can contaminate drainage ditches, streams and drinking water wells. Avoid contact with untreated human waste.

Possible Reduction in Homeowners Insurance

Recently, the Norwich Township Fire Department was awarded an ISO 2 rating. During the November 2017 Brown Township Meeting, the Norwich Fire Department informed us that reductions in home owner insurance premiums may be possible.

Please contact your insurance carrier to determine if you are eligible for lower property insurance rates. When calling your insurnace company, simply state:

"The fire department to protects my (house or business) improved their ISO rating recently and they advised to to call and notify you."

Block Watch Organized

The Brown Township Trustees hosted a Neighborhood Watch Program meeting in conjunction with the Franklin County Sheriff Community Programs division on November 18, 2010.

A Franklin County Sherriff Officer presented a two hour session and distributed materials regarding establishing a Neighborhood Watch Program. He also shared preventative practices and services available to help fight crime.

At the officers' request, the Trustees urge you to participate and help make this program more successful! If you have any questions, please contact any of the Trustees
