Public Requests to Speak at Township Meetings

Posted on January 19, 2024

In 2021, Governor Wolf inacted a law requiring anyone who wishes to speak at a Township meeting, or to have an issue discussed at a Township meeting, must notify the Township in advance so the discussion can be placed on the meeting agenda.

The courts have been enforcing this rule and Townships are being urged to apply this requirement diligently to avoid court cases.

Please note that the Secretary needs to have a request to speak or initiate a discussion at a Township meeting at least three (3) days prior to the Board of Supervisors meeting.  This will give her ample time to prepare the agenda and have it posted within 24 hours of the meeting.

Meeting dates are listed in a news article below this notice.
