West Chester is the largest township in the state of Ohio by population and yet continues to operate a lean, fiscally responsible government framework to benefit residents and businesses alike.

The Township form of government is one of the simplest with three elected Trustees and one elected Fiscal Officer. West Chester is a Limited Home Rule Township.

The West Chester Township Administrator oversees the operations of all Township departments including Police, Fire, Community Services, Community Development, etc.

Finance & Information Technology, Human Resources, Community Services, Integrated Multimedia & Marketing, and Community Development are departments organized directly under Administration.
