The Board of Supervisors also appoints members to the three-person Zoning Hearing Board, for six-year staggered terms. We have three auditors and one tax collector who are all elected. The Roadmaster and the Secretary and Treasurer are appointed positions.
The Township is committed to minimizing tax increases. Our Real Estate Tax of .44 mills and an Emergency Services Tax of .25 mills give a combined tax of .69 mills. We also have an Earned Income Tax of 1% that is shared between the township and the Twin Valley School District, and a Property Tax going exclusively to the school district. We also share a transfer tax on real estate sales that is split between the township and the school district.
There are fines, specific fees for services, grants, and state programs that also generate revenue to operate the township.
The township office is housed in the former Central School. The school closed in 1966. Built in 1879, the school served as an elementary and high school for area children. The Board of Supervisors purchased the school from the Twin Valley School District in 1968 and has used it as the municipal building ever since.

Chester County Pipeline Information Center Website
The Chester County Board of Commissioners is pleased to announce the Pipeline Information Center website. The website provides a wide range of objective information on proposed pipeline projects, regulatory agencies, the regulatory process, pipeline maps, and other pipeline resources. A goal of this initiative is to promote pipeline safety and public awareness through a partnership with pipeline providers, regulators, municipal governments, and other agencies.
The Chester County Planning Commission (CCPC) has been designated as the County’s “point of contact” for issues dealing with proposed pipeline projects within Chester County. We are inviting partner agencies to both visit the website and to provide any pipeline project related information appropriate for posting to the project information page.
