Name and history
Other Miami Townships in the state of Ohio are located in Greene, Hamilton, Logan, and Montgomery counties. Miami Township was created in 1801 as O'Bannon Township, after O'Bannon Creek, a tributary of the Little Miami River that runs through the township.
The township is governed by a three-member board of trustees, who are elected in November of odd-numbered years to a four-year term beginning on the following January 1. Two are elected in the year after the presidential election and one is elected in the year before it. There is also an elected township fiscal officer, who serves a four-year term beginning on April 1 of the year after the election, which is held in November of the year before the presidential election. Vacancies in the fiscal officership or on the board of trustees are filled by the remaining trustees.
As of late 2008, the board was composed of Karl Schultz, Ken Tracy, and Mary Makley Wolff, and the fiscal officer was Eric C. Ferry.
