History

In 1795, 49 investors formed a syndicate to purchase a major part of the Western Reserve from the U.S. state of Connecticut. One of these investors, Aaron Olmsted, became the owner of thousands of acres from his $30,000 share of the $120,000 total land deal. His land encompassed the areas now known as North Olmsted, Olmsted Falls and Olmsted Township (originally known as Lenox).[citation needed]

Government

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,[5] 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. As of 2011, the board was composed of James Carr, Tom Bush, and Sherri Lippus and the fiscal officer was Daniel Faust.[6]
