Township Hall Remodel - Office 

The Danbury Township Hall is currently undergoing renovations. On January 3, 2014 the Danbury Township Zoning Department moved their office temporarily to the 2nd floor of the Police Station located at 419 S. Bridge Road and will remain there while construction is happening. Entry to the Zoning Office at the Police Station will be from the 2nd side door. Signs will be posted. The office is not handicap accessible to the 2nd floor, but we will still be able to assist property owners who are unable to climb stairs on the ground floor. Please refrain from entering through the Police Station's front door if you do not need them. 

The Fiscal Officer has an office space at the Police Station but will be working between the temporary location and her home while the renovations are occurring. The Roads & Maintenance Department also has an office space at the Police Station, but will remain primarily at the Township Hall Garage location. Both of these temporary office spaces will be accessible through the 2nd side door where the Zoning Office will be accessed from. 

All phone numbers, faxes, office hours and emails remain the same. The location of Trustee meetings may change based on the construction activity. Should this occur, there will be information posted on the Township website and signs posted at the Township Hall.
