April 13, 2020 Monthly Business Meeting - Cancelled

The April 13, 2020 Monthly Business Meeting has been cancelled.


A tough decision was made by the Halifax Township Board of Supervisors to postpone the cleanup days scheduled for May 8th and 9th. A later date in early to mid-September will be set at the Board of Supervisors meeting scheduled for May 11th. We are sorry for the action to postpone but felt it was necessary due to COVID-19 and for the safety and welfare of the Township employees and volunteers that work to make this event happen.

Permits and Inspections

Due to Governor Wolf's order of the closure of non-life sustaining businesses, BIU cannot issue permits or perform inspections other than provide emergency electrical service inspections as well as inspections related to state approved medical construction.

You may continue to submit applications for permit to the Township Office. They will be issued once the Order has been lifted by the Governor.

Please call the Township Office at 717-896-3035 to leave a message with any questions.
