West Virginia lies across the Ohio River to the south: Pleasants County in the far southeast, and Wood County otherwise.

Two populated places are located along the Ohio River in Washington Township: most of the city of Marietta, the county seat of Washington County, in the northwest; and the unincorporated community of Reno, in the south.

Name and history

It is the only Marietta Township statewide.[4]

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.
