You can call the Secretary up until 2 days before the meeting and ask to be put on the agenda. You will need to give your name and the general nature of what you would like to speak about. You are not required to be on the agenda to speak, there is a section of the meeting where the Supervisors will address anyone from the floor that may have something they would like to talk about.
The meeting minutes are available to view at the Township Building upon their completion by the Secretary. They are not approved, however, until the following meeting. If copies are requested prior to approval, they will have the word “DRAFT” printed on them. All copies will be .25 cents per page.
If you are installing a concrete driveway, it must be level with or below the road surface. You MUST talk to the Roadmaster prior to installing any driveway that opens onto a Township road. 814-774-4738 ext. 104.
If you live on a Township road, you are required to buy the pipe (diameter will be recommended by the roadmaster) and the Township will install it for you free of charge providing there is a structure on the property. If you live on a State road, you must contact PennDOT, 814-871-4411.
This is the entire legal width of a dedicated road. Most roads in Girard Township have a right of way of 50′. Part of the 50′ can be paved and part can be dirt, this depends on the road. Most times a portion of the road right of way is in what you consider your front yard. One easy way to measure an approximate distance is to measure back 25′ from the center of the road. When in doubt, have the Roadmaster come to mark the right of way for you. This only applies to Township roads, not PennDOT roads.
If you live on Lexington, Middle, State Road south of Franklin Center, Franklin Center, Route 5 (West Lake), Route 20 (Ridge Road), Route 18 (Meadville Road), or Tannery, your road is maintained by PennDOT.
