The Township Hall is located at 459 Robert Lucas Road, Lucasville, Ohio.The Township Hall is the location where the Board of Valley Township Trustees conduct their meetings. The Township Hall is also the Polling place for Valley A and Valley B Precincts during primary and general elections. The Township Hall is available to rent for events like, group meetings, family reunions, or birthday parties to Valley Township residences.

Board of Valley Township Trustees

The Board of Valley Township Trustees regularly scheduled meetings occur on the last Thursday of each month, at the Township Hall located at 459 Robert Lucas Road. Meetings start at 6:00 p.m. with the Fire Department Chief to discuss Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) business. Regular Township Business follows at approximately 7:00 p.m. If the need arises to meet before the regular scheduled meeting, or if a change in date or time become necessary, then the Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting. Public notice of any change in schedule will appear in the local newspaper and on this website.

All Board of Valley Township Trustees meetings are open to the public. The Board of Trustees encourage the public to attend. If you are unable to attend you may follow what is happening in Valley Township by review of meeting minutes which are posted, on this website, after they are reviewed and approved by the Trustees, at the next regularly scheduled meeting.

Public participation will be permitted at each meeting. The Chairman will recognize according to the order registered. A maximum of 30 minutes of public participation will be permitted at each meeting. Each person addressing the board will give their name and address. If several people wish to speak, each person will be allotted three (3) minutes until the total time of 30 minutes is used. During that period, no person may speak twice until all who desire to speak have had the opportunity to do so. Persons desiring more time should follow the procedure of the board to be placed on the regular agenda.

Township Trustee meetings are meetings of the trustees , not the citizens. Of course the meetings are open, and all citizens who wish to speak at the meeting have a right to be heard. But citizens do not have a right to interrupt the meeting concept. Township meetings are not town meetings where citizens may vote on every issue. Ohio has a representative government, the trustees are the lawful representatives of the citizens, and only the trustees have the authority to make township decisions.
