The Board of Supervisors is charged with the general governance of the Township to secure the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the community. To accomplish that task the Board adopts laws, known as ordinances, that govern various activities within the Township. The Board, in turn, is governed by both the Second Class Township Code and various other laws of the Commonwealth.
