The three-person Board of Supervisors are elected for staggered, six-year terms. The board is empowered to set policy, to enact legislation (ordinances), and to levy taxes. It is also the executive body's responsibility to administer the policy, codes, and taxes. The Supervisors set annual budgets and control the expenditure of funds. The Supervisors also make appointments to various boards and committees, including professional advisers, which provide legal and technical counsel. The Supervisors are restricted in their authority by the Second Class Township Code, and various tax enabling acts.
