Burton Township will hold Trick or Treat on Saturday, October 31st from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you will be handing out candy, please make sure to turn your porch light on. We ask that you ensure 6-foot social distancing while distributing treats and recommend the use of face coverings. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has recommended the following measures for social distancing:

  • placing treats on porch steps or a table in the driveway with a sign asking children to take only one.
  • using creative ways to distribute treats, such as a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence.
  • setting up hand-sanitizing stations if children select their own treats from a bowl/common container.

***The Burton Township Park Committee, Zoning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals have open positions. If interested in joining please contact the Trustees at 440-834-1500***
