Township Government

Ferguson Township is known as a home rule municipality. Home rule enables voters to adopt a home rule charter that acts as the city's basic governing document over local issues. The goal of municipal home rule is to help local control and minimize state intervention into municipal affairs. The Ferguson Township Board of Supervisors helps oversee Township operations.
