Welcome to Dickinson Township

Its history revolves around farms, the schools, churches, mills, stores, blacksmith shops and the businesses that supplied them as well as the industries of the mountains which developed the natural resources of wood, iron ore, sand, clay and phosphorous.

NOTICE: The Board of Supervisors would like to notify the Township Residents that the 2020 Census process has been initiated and would like to remind everyone on the importance of participating in the process. You will begin to see Census employees going door to door and driving around neighborhoods to verify information. Please be mindful and require everyone that knocks on your door to produce Census identification.Please click on the PDF below for more information.

2020 Census Information Brochure


The Dickinson Township staff will forward reminders at the end of September to residents requiring septic pumping. To avoid a rush on the contractors in the area, the community is reminded of the requirement for every owner of an individual sewage system to have septage or other solids removed from the treatment tank at least once every three years. Proof of pumping and/or inspection shall be provided by the owner of the individual system within 30 days of the date of service to the Township. For more information, forms, and a list of septic haulers, please see the Sewage Enforcement section of the website.

CD copies of the Comprehensive Plan are available at the Township building.
