UPDATE (3/23/2020):

Due to the Governor’s “stay home” executive order and for the safety of our staff and citizens, Columbia Township facilities (except the Transfer Station) are closed to the public.

We will continue to answer the phone and respond to phone messages and emails during this time. In necessary situations, appointments can be made. Contact us if you feel your situation might require such a meeting. We will, however, attempt all business via phone, email, snail mail, and secure dropbox.

Until restrictions are lifted, meetings will be held on a virtual platform.

Public meetings will be held using a virtual platform and dial-in option.

The April Planning Commission Meeting is CANCELED.


Township facilities cannot be rented at this time.

Fire Stations will only be open to employees (no visitors).


We want to assure our citizens that we are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and impacts it has to our community.
