Purpose & Responsibilities

The Township of Shaler is governed by the Board of Commissioners as established under the First Class Township code. The Board is comprised of seven commissioners, one for each ward, who serve a four year term. The Board plays the central role in Township government by serving as the main legislative body of the Township. They oversee policy development, approval of an annual budget, and tax levying. As elected officials of the Township, Commissioners also work closely with state and county representatives concerning legislation affecting the Township.

To administer the executive responsibilities of the Township, the Board appoints all department heads in the Township as well as board members for the various department boards and commissions. The Board also appoints the Township Manager to serve at the direction of the Board of Commissioners.
