Three elected Trustees govern Genoa Township with an elected Fiscal Officer serving as the Township's chief financial officer. Genoa Township is organized into five full-time departments (Police, Fire, Maintenance, Zoning, and Administration). The Police, Fire and Maintenance Departments are housed at the Safety/Service Complex at 7049 Big Walnut Road, Galena, Ohio. The Administration, Zoning, Fiscal Office, and Township Hall are located at 5111 S. Old 3C Hwy., Westerville, Ohio. All official meetings are held at the Township Hall unless otherwise noted.
An appointed Township Administrator oversees the day-to-day operations of the Township and acts as a liaison between the Township Trustees, the residents and employees. Under the jurisdiction of the three elected Trustees, the Administrator assists in the administration, enforcement and execution of policies and Resolutions of the Board, and directs the activities of the various departments within the Township government.
