Welcome to the Manheim Township website. This website is just one of the methods used by the Township to communicate with you - our residents, businesses and visitors, and we are pleased that you are visiting and exploring our community.
Communication is one of our highest priorities in Manheim Township, and our website plays a central role in providing public information about the Township's operations and activities. The site is supplemented by the quarterly publication "Township Today" which is part of our quarterly recreation program brochure distributed throughout the year. The website also offers to you immediate notification capabilities under the "Notify Me" system, where citizens can receive immediate "News Flashes," calendar notices, traffic alerts and crime information directly to a personal e-mail account or cell phone.
Along with providing you information about the Township's governmental structure, services, and programs, you will find the latest meeting announcements, meeting minutes, and other informational documents. The current Township budget documents are readily available, which also include an extensive analysis that demonstrates the Township's approach to financial management. All of this information is available to you twenty-four hours a day.
If you don't know where to start, try "SEARCH." The website
has a powerful search engine under the "Search" in the page header. Our growing "Resource Directory" should be extremely interesting to users interested in quickly locating relevant answers and documents. Also look for our new "Facilities" module (coming soon) that describes and highlights the parks and facilities owned and operated by the Township for you enjoyment. There are a variety of "E" tools for you to use, as well as a growing list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) also in place that give you quick answers to common questions submitted to the Township staff on numerous topics. Finally, the site offers a way for you communicate back to your elected officials or Township staff via e-mail or the Citizen Request Tracker (CRT) system.
Manheim Township is a community of diverse interests, backgrounds, and opinions - but most citizens are unanimous on one point: Manheim Township is truly a wonderful place in which to live, work and play. It is our hope that this website will encourage involvement and even greater understanding as to how the Township is organized, how citizens can get involved, what facilities and services are available for you to enjoy, and how the Township organization can be more responsive to various community needs
On behalf of the Manheim Township Board of Commissioners and all of the Township staff, thank you again for visiting the website and please do not hesitate to contact us with any topic of concern.
