Positions Available for Various Boards and Commissions

West Norriton Township (4)

West Norriton Township is a first class Township governed by a Board of Commissioners. West Norriton is consistently working to improve the way the public relates to the Board of Commissioners and how the Commissioners reach out to and encourage citizen involvement. The Code and State legislation allows the board to enlist the capabilities of citizens of the municipality through the creation of authorities, boards and commissions. Although some of these entities are mandatory, such as a zoning hearing board if your township has enacted a zoning ordinance, many others are permissive. The concept of authorities, boards and commissions not only allows the governing body to draw on citizens with particular expertise but also provides a channel for citizens to become more directly involved in their government.

West Norriton Township’s boards, commissions, committees and task forces provide an invaluable service to the Township. These advisory boards originate from different sources. Some of these are established by ordinance while others are established by resolution or motion of the Commissioners, and it is the discretion of the Board as to whether or not an advisory board should be established, other than those required by State law. 

The Board of Commissioners is actively seeking individuals for the following positions:

  • Planning Commission- 2-year term ending the 1st Monday in 2022
  • Planning Commission- 1-year term ending the 1st Monday in 2021
  • Industrial Development Authority- 5-year term ending the 1st Monday in 2025
  • Civil Service Commission (Alternate)- 6-year term ending the 1st Monday in 2026
  • Zoning Hearing Board (Alternate)- 3-year term ending the 1st Monday in 2023
  • Human Relations Commission- 1-year term ending the 1st Monday in 2021
