The Zoning Hearing Board consists of five members appointed by the Board of Supervisors. All members are Township residents and serve a five-year term. The Alternate members term is three years. A Solicitor who provides legal counsel assists the Board. By Pennsylvania Statute, the Zoning Hearing Board chooses the Solicitor, but his compensation is set and paid by the Board of Supervisors. Meetings are held on the second Monday of the month at 5:00 pm, and are held at the Township Building. Members are paid for each meeting attended.
