Board of Supervisors
Cranberry Township is governed by an elected body organized under the Second Class Township Code of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Board of Supervisors consists of five elected officials, each serving a six year term. The Board of Supervisors is charged with the general governance of the Township to secure the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the community. To accomplish that task the Board adopts laws, known as ordinances, that govern various activities within the Township. The Board, in turn, is governed by both the Second Class Township Code and various other laws of the Commonwealth. The Board appoints a Township Manager who is charged by the Board with implementing the ordinances it passes and managing the annual budget of the Township which is adopted by the Board each December for the following calendar year. The Board of Supervisors meet on a twice monthly basis, on the first and last Thursdays of the month, at 6:30 pm. in Council Chambers to conduct business on behalf of the Township. All meetings of the Board are open to the public with an opportunity at each meeting for public comment.
