Allegheny Township government is operated under the leadership of three Township Supervisors, where all three supervisors have an equal vote and have input into all of the departments.
Areas of responsibility in the Township are divided into three categories: Police, Sewer, and Highways.
The Supervisors are charged with the general governance of the Township and the execution of legislative, executive and administrative powers in order to ensure sound fiscal management and to secure the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the Township. They also have the responsibility for maintenance of Township-owned equipment and facilities.
Supervisors, unless there is a vacancy to be filled, are elected for six-year terms of office. If there is a vacancy, the remaining board members appoint a new supervisor, who must then run for election at the next available election date to complete the remainder of the unexpired term.
The Supervisors can be reached at 814-695-9563.
