Block Watch Reorganized

On December 10, 2018, four Brown Township residents met with Deputy Hatfield from the Franklin County Sheriff's office and Trustee Martin to discuss new Block Watch leadership. Much work has been done over the past ten years and the new leadership wants to continue the level of service residents have enjoyed in the past. Therefore, as part of the reorganization effort, the Block Watch is asking those residents who would like to continue to receive block watch communications to please update your contact information (see form on the right). This process will speed the transition process as the new leadership updates and verifies the list of township residents.  Also, if you have a neighbor that does not read the newsletter or website, please share this information with them.  Thank you for making Brown Township a safer place to live!

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.

Report suspected failed systems:

  • Call (614) 525-4787
  • FailingHSTS@FranklinCountyOhio.gov
