Township Officials

Elected and Appointed Officials

A three-person Board of Supervisors, elected at large, one of whom serves as Chairman, governs Rye Township. The term of office is six years, one supervisor being elected every two years.

Officers are nominated for Township positions at the annual organizational meeting held as required by the Second Class Code the first Monday in January, or Tuesday, if Monday is a legal holiday, and appointed to those positions by a majority vote of the board.

Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM. Public comment and participation is always welcomed and encouraged.

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.
