In 1933, Pennsylvania enacted the Second Class Township Code, which sets forth the general powers of the Township and the manner in which the supervisors will exercise these powers. Second Class Townships are prohibited from exercising any powers not specifically authorized in the Code.
The voting public elects three supervisors and three auditors, each to a six-year term of office, and one tax collector to a four-year term of office. All must be residents of the Township.
Starting in 2000, the Township hired a certified public accountant to do the yearly audit of the Township financial records. Prior to 2000, the elected auditors performed this task. Today, the only job of the elected auditors is to to determine the compensation for any Supervisors employed by the Township as regular employees (there currently are none). The annual audits available on the Annual Reports page.
