First Class Township Code Legislation

First Class Township Code Rewrite – Act 96 (HB 2073)

Over the last several years, township commissioners, managers and solicitors from PSATC’s three regions have worked with staff of the Local Government Commission and the League to review and update the language of the Code. At the end of 2018, all first class townships were provided the opportunity to review and comment on the draft. 

House Bill 2073 was signed into law by the Governor as Act 96 on October 29, 2020.

Please find the Executive Summary of the Rewrite here.
