Carrollton Township (/ˈkɑːrəltən/ KAR-əl-tən) is a unique civil township of Saginaw County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 6,103 at the 2010 census. Although Carrollton is a township, it provides many of the services of larger municipalities, including a full-time police department, fire department, parks & recreation services as well as its own k-12 school system, Carrollton Public Schools. Established in 1866, the residents of this small four-square mile suburban community have a long history of taking great pride in it. Along with being located on the Saginaw River, Carrollton offers close access to shopping malls, medical facilities, Saginaw Valley State University, and I-75 for travel outside of the immediate area.
