Barrett is a second-class township. A second-class township usually has three supervisors, elected at large for six-year terms. A referendum may allow a second-class township's board of supervisors to expand to five members. Some townships have home-rule charters, which allow for a mayor/council form of government.

The program arose after volunteers began reporting clients were sharing their Meals on Wheels food with their pets, thereby compromising their own nutrition and good health. Currently our volunteers graciously deliver food to 24 dogs and 36 cats on a monthly…
