A new County Water Authority is being formed to represent all the municipalities that currently are water customers. The proposed agreement calls for a voting member to be recommended to the county for appointment to this post. The township is now publishing and asking for any interested persons to contact the township office and indicate willingness to serve and provide contact information for the appointment process. You may e-mail the secretary or call the office during normal business hours. The timing is critical as the agreement that facilitates all this calls for the name and address of the first appointed member of each municipality to be included in the paperwork when it is sent to the state.
The township is now considering a major update and complete re-write of our existing zoning ordinance. The original zoning ordinance was written in the late 1960’s and has only been amended once. We are holding 2 public hearings to take input into suggested changes before passage of this ordinance. The hearings are publicly advertised and scheduled for 1 hour previous to our next regularly scheduled meetings. The hearing dates are Monday Sept 21st at 12 Noon and Monday October 5th at 5 PM in the meeting room at the township office. All are encouraged to attend and review what we are proposing and make suggestions.
Welcome to the Union Township web page. After an extended period of time of this page being offline, we have now started with a new web host and administrator. The sight is now being hosted by The PA Association of Township Supervisors or PSATS. It is being administered by the township and the content slowly loaded, updated and formatted in a better and more pleasing form. Please bear with us as we work to make this site something much more than it is. Our in house abilities to work with web pages is limited and a learning experience for sure. This may take some time and some trial and error. If you see any of us out and have suggestions, please say so.
