Board of Supervisors
Springettsbury Township is governed by a board of five supervisors elected at large by the voters for a six-year term.
Years ago, supervisors were mainly in charge of maintaining roads and bridges, and plowing snow in the winter. Today, as the needs of township residents have grown, so has the role of township supervisor. From public safety, to emergency services, to environmental protection, these volunteer public servants assume an ever-greater role in providing services and facilities to respond to their citizens' needs and, especially, to meet the demands of a constantly increasing array of state and federal mandates.
The board of supervisors serves as the township's legislative body, setting policy, enacting local ordinances, adopting budgets, and levying taxes.
