Freedom Township Board of Supervisors

Freedom Township Board of Supervisors

Freedom Township is a specific form of local or municipal government defined by an act of the state legislature known as the Second Class Township Code.  The Second Class Township Code places the general supervision of the affairs of the township in the hands of the Board of Supervisors. 

Through their respective operating codes, municipalities are given power to act for the good of society.  As a municipal government, townships have the ultimate responsibility for public health, safety, and welfare, which may include police and fire protection, emergency medical services, emergency management, highway maintenance, and codes enforcement. Townships may also provide other services, such as parks and recreation, water and sewer service, and refuse collection, in furtherance of their legislated responsibilities.

Municipal government is important to the quality of life within a community.  Townships can establish health and safety regulations to protect citizens from nuisances and noxious activities; regulate building activities; and control of land development through zoning and subdivision ordinances.  Municipal government can also influence the general appearance and desirability of a community through sponsorship of cultural or recreational activities, such as libraries, museums, parks, playgrounds, swimming pools, community centers, and senior citizen centers, as well as community based activities.

The Board of Supervisors meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.  The meetings begin at 7:00pm and are held at the Freedom Township Municipal Building. Meeting minutes will be posted online after approval by the Board at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
