Township Supervisors

A three-person Board of Supervisors, elected at large, one of whom serves as Chairman, governs Pine Township. The term of office is six years, one supervisor being elected every two years. Officers are elected at the annual organizational meeting on the first Monday in January.







Although Supervisors are responsible for the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the Township, their positions are essentially voluntary and not the primary occupation of the incumbents. Supervisors perform both legislative and executive duties. They legislate by setting policy, passing needed ordinances and resolutions, adopting budgets, and levying taxes. They also perform executive functions such as formulating the budget, enforcing ordinances, approving expenditures, and hiring employees.









Supervisors:





    Max Harlan, Chairman 



    Lori Laubenstein, Vice Chairwoman 





    Shelly Johnston, Road Master 







Meetings are held at the Towhship building at 925 Oregon Hill Road at 7:00 p.m. on the 1st Thursday of every month. Public comment and participation is always welcome and encouraged.
