Board of Supervisors
Allegheny Township is governed by an elected body organized under the Second Class Township Code of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Board of Supervisors consists of three elected officials, each serving a six year term.
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.
The Board appoints a Township Manager who is charged by the Board with implementing the ordinances it passes and managing the annual budget of the Township which is adopted by the Board each December for the following calendar year.
The Board of Supervisors meets on a twice-monthly basis (Agenda Meeting is the Wednesday before the 2nd Monday of the month and the Legislative meeting is the 2nd Monday of the month) at 7:00 p.m. in Council Chambers to conduct business on behalf of the Township. All meetings of the Board are open to the public with an opportunity at each meeting for public comment. If a resident has a concern he or she feels needs to be addressed by the Township, the individual is encouraged to contact the Township Manager’s Office which may be able to address the manner promptly and/or schedule an appropriate time for that individual to present concerns to the Board of Supervisors.
Residents are encouraged to present their views on Township matters on any of the means available, including letters, e-mail, telephone and voice mail. The Board strives to facilitate your communication with Township officials. The supervisors may also be reached through the Township Office at 724-842-4641.
