NOTICE TO RESIDENTS OF

SWATARA TOWNSHIP, DAUPHIN COUNTY

 
The Swatara Township Board of Commissioners will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, at 7:00 p.m., at the Municipal Building, 599 Eisenhower Boulevard, Harrisburg, PA to discuss reapportionment on whether the Board of Commissioners should maintain the present nine ward system by electing commissioners by ward, or to elect five commissioners (at large) throughout Swatara Township.   If the Board of Commissioners enacts an ordinance to go at large and the ordinance is filed with Dauphin County in a timely manner prior to February 17, 2015, the ordinance would be in effect for the May 19, 2015 municipal primary and the November 3, 2015 municipal election.
 
Below is the definition of electing five commissioners at large:
This change would only affect the odd wards, 1-3-5-7-9 in 2015.  Candidates could obtain signatures in any of the nine wards in the township between February 17 and March 10.  Swatara Township ballots would read Township Commissioner (Vote for not more than 3).  These candidates would run throughout the township.  The three highest vote getters would be elected in November 2015.  In January, 2016 the Board would decrease to seven members.  In 2017, wards 2-4-6-8 are affected.  The same procedure is followed, however only two commissioners would be elected in November 2017, and in January 2018 the Board would decrease to five commissioners and remain thereafter.
