My neighbor’s dog won’t stop barking, what can I do?
Franklin Township Resolution # 02-091008 finds that dogs which howl, bark or yelp creating unreasonable loud and disturbing noise of such character, intensity and duration, as to disturb the peace and quiet of the township are a nuisance.

I received a bill from JEM's but I can't afford to pay it.
Currently JEMS uses an outside billing company. They do soft billing, which means no one is going to come after you for the money. Of course every dime you pay will help ensure that JEMS has the best equipment and personnel possible. However, if you cannot pay the bill simply ignore it. The billing company will send you three invoices, if they do not hear from you then they will stop sending invoices to you.
My neighbor hasn’t cut the grass all summer, can the township do anything?
These properties are handled on a case by case basis. In the event that the property meets the criteria for Franklin Township to order the grass cut, please understand it doesn’t happen overnight. We have to go through a legal process and it could take several weeks from the time of your complaint until the time that the grass/weeds are cut. You should email Traci.Stivers@Franklintownshipohio.us to register a complaint.
