West Nile News
The Franklin County Public Health department had the first pool of mosquitoes this season test positive for West Nile virus (WNV) in a trap from Grandview. Spraying was performed there the evening of June 2nd.
While this may seem a bit early it is not unexpected as we know we have WNV in our Franklin County. Traps are being set around Franklin County, including two locations in Brown Township. More information on the collection effort can be found on the Public Health department surveillance webpage. Click here to see collection data from the traps in Franklin County.

Effective January 1, 2014, Brown Township Trustee meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month in the upstairs meeting room at the Brown Township Firehouse, located at 2491 Walker Road, Hilliard, Ohio 43026.
This project is being managed by the Franklin County Economic Development & Planning Department. Brown Township residents, officials and Franklin County planners are developing a land use plan for unincorporated Brown Township.
Franklin County planners are meeting with a working committee composed of township residents, business owners, developers and others. This committee helps review public input and provides detailed feedback to the planners during the planning process.
Public meetings are scheduled to gather public input and comments about the direction and content of the plan. Meetings are publically advertised with road signs throughout the township and other announcements. Franklin County planners have set up a public website where township residents and other stakeholders can download plan documents, meeting materials and presentations.
