Name and history
Over the past decade, Newbury has declined and has lost its only grocery store (Three Sisters) and only pharmacy (Newbury Pharmacy), and its local post office doesn't even deliver mail any longer (mail in Newbury is delivered from the Burton post office).
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.
