Camp Hill Borough

Mayor

Camp Hill Borough’s Mayor is an unpaid official elected for a term of 4 years.

In Camp Hill Borough, the Mayor oversees the Police Department and presides with the seven members of Borough Council.  The Mayor may vote only in instances of a tie among Council members (meaning one or more Council members are not present or unable to vote on a matter). Unlike the strong mayor system, the mayor is not the chief executive when it comes to the day-to-day administration of the municipal government.  That is the responsibility of the Borough Manager who is approved and hired by Borough Council.

Borough Council

Four positions open

All Borough Council members are non-paid elected officials residing in Camp Hill Borough. Borough Council meets regularly the second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at Prosser Hall, and may schedule Special Council Meetings when necessary.

Tax Collector

Tax collectors, also referred to as revenue officers, attempt to gather money owed to the government by individuals or businesses late in filing tax returns. Most tax collectors work for the government at federal, state or local levels. Bachelor’s degree in business, accounting, or finance required.

Carlisle Borough

Mayor

The Mayor is elected at large to a four-year term with the primary responsibility of presiding over Council and signing all ordinances.  As an official representative of the Borough, the Mayor has the right to declare public emergencies, serves as the chair of the public safety committee and is an ex officio member of all other Borough committees. The Mayor is a voting member of Council and has no veto power. Another function of the office is to serve as spokesperson for the community and to represent the Borough at various civic and social activities.

Borough Council

Three positions open

Borough Council is the legislative body of the Borough. It is comprised of seven members, six council members and a Mayor, each elected at large for four-year overlapping terms. After each general municipal election (i.e. every two years), Borough Council is reorganized and a Deputy Mayor is selected from among members. The Deputy Mayor will chair meetings of Council in the absences of the Mayor, and may exercise the authority of the Mayor.  In addition, during the biennial organizational meeting, members elect among themselves a chairperson and vice-chairman for the following committees: Community Planning & Smart Growth, Employee Relations/Citizen Participation, Finance, Parks & Recreation, Public Safety, and Public Works. The primary duties of Borough Council include adoption of the annual budget, the establishment of policies for the conduct of Borough affairs, the enactment of ordinances and resolutions for the protection of the public’s safety and welfare, and approval of contracts and bids. Furthermore, Council’s responsibilities include the appointment of the Borough Manager and other respective officials, along with members of various municipal boards and commissions.

Cooke Township

Supervisor

A board of three or five supervisors, elected at large for six-year terms, governs each township. As the township’s legislative body, this board enacts ordinances, adopts budgets, and levies taxes. Because there is no separately elected executive, except in some home rule townships, the supervisors also perform such functions as enforcing ordinances, approving expenditures, and hiring employees.

Townships are the oldest form of organized government in the United States. Years ago, township supervisors were mainly in charge of maintaining roads and bridges. Today, their role has expanded to include public safety, land use, and environmental protection, among many other responsibilities. In addition, as state and federal mandates increase, these public servants assume an ever-greater role in meeting these demands while providing needed services and facilities for their residents.

South Middleton Township

Supervisor

A board of three or five supervisors, elected at large for six-year terms, governs each township. As the township’s legislative body, this board enacts ordinances, adopts budgets, and levies taxes. Because there is no separately elected executive, except in some home rule townships, the supervisors also perform such functions as enforcing ordinances, approving expenditures, and hiring employees.

Townships are the oldest form of organized government in the United States. Years ago, township supervisors were mainly in charge of maintaining roads and bridges. Today, their role has expanded to include public safety, land use, and environmental protection, among many other responsibilities. In addition, as state and federal mandates increase, these public servants assume an ever-greater role in meeting these demands while providing needed services and facilities for their residents.

Most tax collectors work for the government at federal, state or local levels. Bachelor’s degree in business, accounting, or finance required.

The board of auditors meets annually to determine the current-year compensation for supervisors who are also employed by the township.
