Fostering friendships. Building communities.

When you want to know the state of the township, you need to look no further than the quarterly letter from North Township Trustee Frank Mrvan.

The letters delve into the serious, the fun, the good and the necessary.

Mrvan enjoys the opportunity to discuss issues of import with residents.

“The items I bring up in the column are definite conversation starters when I am out in the community,” he said. “When my family slept out in the park with dozens of others during our urban campout and I wrote about it in the newsletter, I heard from many other families who were gearing up to take part in the next one. The column gives me an opportunity to broach topics and begin conversations in the community and that is always a good thing.”
