The Board of Supervisors established an Agricultural Advisory Committee (AAC) to discuss affairs of the Township as pertaining to the agricultural community. The AAC does not meet on a regular bases as do most of the other committees of the Township. It meets when the Board of Supervisors is contemplating adopting ordinances, resolutions, and similar action which may have a direct or indirect on farming practices. For example, prior to adopting the Burning Ordinance, a copy of which you can find in this website, the AAC met and reviewed the ordinance and suggested possible revisions which the Board considered prior to adopting the final version of the ordinance.
The Agricultural Security Committee is a five member committee who are residents of the Township and meet periodically on matters pertaining to farming and agriculture. The primary function of the committee is to review applications for inclusion in the Township Agricultural Security District and recommend appropriate action to the Board of Supervisors.
August is the month in which applications for inclusion are accepted by the Township, and the Agricultural Security Committee generally meets in September or October to review these applications.
At present, there are in excess of 8,000 acres of farm land in the Township's Agricultural Security District.
