The Township receives thousands of calls from residents each year asking for assistance and information. To better serve our residents, we have listed the names and responsibilities of each of the Township’s employees. In addition, we have identified those issues and topics which residents call the Township Office about most often, along with the staff person who is best qualified to address them.
Many of the calls deal with roadway maintenance issues. Those calls can be best handled by our road crew, which works out of our maintenance facility on Meadowcreek Lane. Residents are encouraged to call the facility (717-293-1733) and address their questions and issues directly with our roadway crew. Due to the nature of their work, there are times when all road crew members will be out of the office. If this is the case, just leave a message and the road crew will return your call or contact the Township Office to speak to someone.
