What does Delaware Township Do?
A last course of action to assistance any neighbor living in our district in need of the basic necessities of life.
We own a building on East 131st street that holds events and meetings.
Maintain three ancient cemeteries.
We collect taxes from all unincorporated township properties and pay the Fishers Fire Department for the protection. If you live in the Fishers city boundary, we don't collect this tax.
