Freedom Township Government

Freedom Township Government

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. 


Planning Commission

The Planning Commission is an advisory board.  Commission members play a major role in advising and providing recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on matters of community growth and development. The Planning Commission reviews all applications for subdivision and land development plans as well as, by request of the Board of Supervisors, Conditional Use and Zoning Amendment applications.

Zoning Hearing Board

The Zoning Hearing Board (ZHB) is a quasi-judicial board consisting of three (3) members who each serve a three (3) year term. Members of the ZHB must reside within the municipality.  The Board of Supervisors appoints the members, but the members act as an independent board.

Board of Auditors

Each Township of the Second Class elects three auditors.  At each municipal election, one auditor is elected to serve for a term of six years.   Auditors must be registered voters of the Township.
