Thank you for your support of Providence Township. Along with the other trustees my goal is to serve your best interests and make Providence Township an even better place to live and work.
Steve Kendall, Trustee
Top priorities are:
Improve Township communications with residents
Efficiently provide all necessary services as economically as possible
Aggressively pursue grants and all other non-tax revenue sources to return our tax dollars to our township
Preserve our Township's rural, residential/agricultural character
Effectively plan for the future
Increase citizen involvement in Township initiatives
Significant changes are on the horizon for our Township and we will need everyone working together to ensure that we manage these changes to provide the best results for all present and future Township residents.
I look forward to working with you and hearing any comments, concerns, questions, or suggestions you may have regarding our Township.
Feel free to contact me.
