2023 TAXES & FEES:   The Board of Supervisors voted to keep all taxes and fees the same for 2023, including real estate taxes, trash fees, permit fees, etc.

SNOW PLOWING: 

  • There are 112 miles of roads in our Township which need to be plowed and salted. 
  • We prioritize main roads. Local roads within developments are the last roads to be plowed. 
  • PennDOT has advised that they are extremely short staffed, meaning the plowing of state roads may be significantly delayed. 
  • Please stay off all roads during snow events so our crews can safely do their jobs. 
  • Calling our office will not speed up the plowing process as our drivers each have a route that they follow. 
  • We cannot take special requests for plowing so please plan ahead if your travels are essential. 
  • Vehicles parked on the street will delay or prevent our ability to plow on your street or in front of your property. 
  • Please remember, there is nothing we can do to prevent plowing snow onto the end of your driveway after you have already shoveled; it is not intentional and there is no way to avoid it.
  • If you are in a cul-de-sac, please understand that we need to push the snow somewhere; cul-de-sacs are our most challenging to plow and result in the most complaints, although we have few options!
  • The Township has passed a Resolution addressing damage to mailboxes.  CLICK HERE
