Mifflin Township in Franklin County is a type of township known as a civil township. Typically, a board of township trustees oversees the township. The major issues that a township government addresses are cemetery maintenance, trash collection, road upkeep and snow removal and, sometimes, police and fire services. Civil townships are most common in rural areas, but even large cities sometimes expand around townships or parts of townships. Commonly townships are annexed into a municipality as a town or city develops and expands. Over the years, portions of Mifflin Township have been annexed into the city of Columbus or Gahanna as these municipalities have grown.
