Magna Metro Township

A Metro Township is a municipality like a city or town. Its governing board, the Metro Township Council is comprised of five members who are elected to serve, just like cities and towns elect their councils. The Mayor of the Metro Township is currently chosen by a vote of the Metro Township Council – the same way some towns choose their Mayor. The Metro Township has a budget it must manage; municipal laws, rules and regulations it must create, change and enforce; and state laws it must follow and enforce. In fact, the state laws the Metro Township must work within are generally the same laws cities and towns must conduct their business by – including the state laws for land use.
