York Township 03-26-2020 Press Release



America's richest blessing is her people. They are the real strength in her grass roots, and that is what township government is all about. It is often described as "the last bastion of true democracy".

Township government is the oldest form of government in our country; yet it is probably the one people are most unfamiliar with. It is a pleasure for me to have this opportunity to introduce you to current township government and outline our many fine services.

Township services touch the lives of most of our residents. We are small, accessible, responsive, and cost effective claiming less than one and one-half percent of the entire real estate tax bill.

Please take the opportunity to browse through this web site and become better informed about what we do to serve you.
