COVID-19 Emergency

Dear Fellow Residents,
It has been reported that a possible case of COVID-19 may exist in our Community. While this information has not yet been confirmed, we want our residents to be aware, and more importantly to take heed of the need for social/physical distancing as it has been ordered by the Federal Government, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, CDC, and World Health Organization. While our offices remained closed to the public at this time, we at the Township continue to work with the best interest of our residents in mind. We look forward to being open again soon. In the meantime, please reach out should the need arise:
