German township’s rich history as curated by its residents

German Township Trustee Advisory Board

Cripe-Witter and Portage Prairie cemeteries

German Township is a township in the northwestern corner of South Bend in St Joseph County, Indiana.

Our current Trustee is Jennifer Robinson and our office is located in the old Wagner School on Portage Road.

Indiana law requires that the Township Trustees provide essential services to the residents and businesses of the Township. Because of its “grassroots” structure, the Township Trustee system is designed specifically to quickly meet the needs of the individual in an emergency.

We are happy to offer temporary assistance to our less fortunate residents. We hope our extensive knowledge of State, Federal, and private programs will be helpful to those in need. We also have exceptional fire and emergency service protection.
