Townships served as one of the first forms of local government in Minnesota.
Some of the primary responsibilities of the township board include maintenance of town roads, ditch mowing and spraying, Planning and Zoning - even setting the gopher bounty!
The Hawley Township is also a member of the Hawley Area Fire District for fire protection and contribute to HERT for emergency medical care.
