As a Township of the second class, Richland is governed by a three-member Board of Supervisors, one of whom serves as chairman on a rotating basis. Supervisors are elected at large by the electorate for staggered six-year terms and perform both legislative and executive duties for the “health, safety, and welfare” of Township residents. They are required by state law to establish a budget for each year’s anticipated expenses and they are given the right to set various taxes to defray those expenses.
To assist them, supervisors are empowered to appoint professionals such as an attorney and an engineer. The Board also appoints all members of the Advisory Boards and Commissions, as well as the Zoning Hearing Board and Municipal Water Authority.
The Board of Supervisors holds meetings on the 2nd Monday of each month to conduct Township business. Meetings, open to the public, are held at the Township Building, 1328 California Road, at 7:00 PM. Residents are welcome to express opinions at meetings during “Public Comment” time on the agenda, but the Supervisors have the sole responsibility to legislate and conduct Township business.
The Township building is open for business Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM. All minutes, financial reports, ordinances, resolutions, contracts, agreements, subdivision plans, etc., for the Township are available for public inspection during office hours. Requests for any copies are charged at $.25 per page.
The Board of Supervisors will hold a Public Hearing at their meeting on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, to consider a proposed ordinance which would amend the Township Code of Ordinances by revising Chapter 27 (Zoning) to add and revise regulations relating to single family detached uses.
