Township Code

The Township Code is the codified collection of all Township Ordinances listed alphabetically. The code references all those ordinances from animals to zoning and lets you know when the ordinance was adopted, any revisions, and what it entails.

The Township Code document is now available online or a copy can be viewed at the township office during regular business hours.

The following PDF files have been codified through January, 2016. For Ordinances that have been adopted to date since January, 2016, please contact the Township Office at 724-695-0500. The next codification is anticipated for the Fall of 2016.
