Local Government

Ohio is a home rule state, meaning that municipalities and counties have the ability to pass laws to govern themselves as they see fit, so long as they obey the state and federal constitutions. In addition, many state agency programs and services are administered and provided at the local level so that those resources can best meet the needs of those in the communities they serve.
