The Center for Community Resources has left a small box at the Jefferson Township Building for ‘used coats that are clean and in good condition’ for collection from Township Residents through Dec. 31, 2023 only.
Jefferson Township is requesting assistance to locate person or persons responsible for the latest damage to Laura Doerr Park. They are responsible for tearing up the newly finished parking lot between the softball fields and the baseball concession stand and the large lawn area between the Wayne Deaner Gazebo and Hannahstown Road.
The damage was done at 9:27 p.m. on Sunday night, October 22, 2023. It appeared to be a lighter colored SUV Hatchback with fog lights and a possible sunroof. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
As a Township we strive to provide not only low taxes, exceptional quality roads but also a recreational park for all residents and surrounding townships residents to enjoy at no additional cost. The Township is providing improvements to enhance the facility for all users.
Our road department is constantly not only maintaining roads and township equipment but maintaining many facets of the park. They do not need added duties to repair damage from inconsiderate people who do not respect property of others.
Donations toward the Pool Renovation Project, whether individual or business/corporate, PLEASE contact Greg Bauer at 724-524-3663. If not reachable, contact the Township Office at 724-352-2324.

Any property owner that has dead, dying trees, etc. that may cause a potential safety issue to residents or the public should check into having them removed to prevent harm or casualties to anyone.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Township office at 724-352-2324 or email – Jefftwpmgr@zoominternet.net.
PLEASE DO NOT allow the cut grass to accumulate on the roadway. It is a safety issue – especially if the grass becomes wet. It could cause a vehicle to lose traction and 'you' could be held responsible.
It is Jefferson Township's responsibility is to clear and protect the Township rights-of-way. The Township is NOT authorized to clean-up any private property; the only exception would be for Emergency access for 9-1-1 responders! It also not legal for property owners to place any storm/rain/wind debris from their property along the township road rights-of-way.
During the upcoming WINTER months, as per the Township Ordinances, NO ONE is to park on the cul-de-sacs or any public road or right of way so that the road can easily be cleaned of snow. Please DO NOT PUSH SNOW ONTO THE ROADS when plowing your driveway. Should this cause an accident, you could be named in a claim or lawsuit.
In addition, this is a reminder that the Township is NOT responsible for replacing or repairing mailboxes damaged during the plowing/salting process. Mailbox installation guidelines are available at the USPS website - “Regulations for Installing a Mailbox.”
Also, residents living along the Butler-Freeport Community Trail are asked to be considerate when plowing snow from their property. Some residents are plowing snow onto the trail and in front of the gates, which blocks emergency vehicle access. If there would be an emergency, Emergency Services / 1st Responders would have difficulty getting to the scene.
We are on a trial free of charge for the Jefferson Township Ordinances to be online and accessible electronically. Click on the link below to go to the new pages listing all of the approved Jefferson Township Ordinances. Questions? Please contact the Township Office.

At Pennsylvania American Water, providing safe, clean, reliable and affordable water service is a foundation for healthy communities and our company's our top priority. Although we do not have a problem with lead service lines or lead levels in water, we believe that removing the risk of customer-side lead service lines over time is the right thing to do for the health, safety and peace of mind of our customers. For this reason, we developed and launched a program with the goal of replacing all customer-side lead service lines.
If the customer-owned portion of your service line is made of lead, we’d like to work with you to replace it at no direct cost to you. Under a signed agreement with each customer, Pennsylvania American Water will perform the work, cover the cost, and provide a 2-year warranty, and the customer will retain ownership of the new water service line once installed. Read more about how the program works.
