Citizens Learning about Police Work

July 25, 2019

The first Butler Township Police Citizen’s Academy is underway, having started September 11 and running through October 23.

During the seven week, participants are learning abut the inner workings of the police department. Topics include criminal investigation, traffic and accident investigation, evidence collection and response to resistance.  Students will also ride along with officers. Since this was our first academy, we wanted to limit the number of students to ensure we were able to meet each participant’s needs, “said Police Chief John Porter. “We hope to grow the enrollment in future classes, giving more residents the opportunity to become involved.”

The next academy will be held next spring and is open to all Butler township residents.  Attendance is free however an application form is required and can be found by clicking on the attached link: Citizen Police Academy Application.   Click here to view the Citizen’s Police Academy Video

Township’s Business Base Growing

March 28, 2019

Commercial development and redevelopment remain strong in Butler Township, with a variety of businesses investing in the community.

Hotel Boom: Two new hotels are under construction, bringing the total number of hotels in the township to 16 and the total number of rooms of 1,580, many of which are at full capacity on weekends. Butler Township’s Miller Lane area is home to approximately 25 percent of Montgomery County’s total hotel base. In lodging tax alone, the township receives over $800,000 in revenue, annually.

“It’s unique for a township to have so many hotels” said Township Administrator Erika Vogel. “We’re fortunate to be able to bring so many visitors into our business district to lodge and dine.”

In addition…Minster Bank is nearing the construction phase of its new local branch on the vacant lot at the corner of North Dixie Drive and Reinwood Drive. The township was able to sell just under an acre of land to the bank for this project. And Skyline Chili has recently completed a remodeling and facelift at its location on Miller Lane.
