Upon review of the 2015 budget, it has been the decision of the Board to reinstate fees for fire hydrants and street lights. This is not a new resolution, nor will it affect every Township Resident.

Those residents who have fire hydrants and/or street lights are assessed: fire hydrants on a front footage basis, this means that the fees are charged on the front footage of the property located within a certain radius of the fire hydrant.

The Township has assumed these fees for the past eight years, as the Supervisors voted to stop collecting these fees in 2007. In 2012, the Township taxes were raised by 1 mill to offset some of these costs.

In 2016, residents who have fire hydrants and/or street lights near thier property will see a new fee on their tax bill to account for these costs.

If you feel that there is an error in the fire hydrant tax you have been assessed please complete and submit the form at the hyperlink below or stop at the Township Building during normal business hours 7am to 3:30 pm to acquire
the form and submit.  Ligonier Township Fire Hydrant Fee Petition Form

Warning to Citizens!
The Ligonier Police Department has recently received numerous telephone calls regarding people impersonating the IRS and attempting to garner monies and threatening people with jail if they do not respond. This scam is very prevalent during the tax season. First and foremost, the IRS does not operate in this fashion. Never give personal and/or banking information over the telephone, especially unsolicited telephone calls. If you do receive one of these telephone calls go to This website is operated by the Treasury Inspector General and once upon the site you can click on "IRS Impersonation Scam" highlighted in red. Then follow the instructions to fill this complaint form out.

The Board of Supervisors of Ligonier Township has been in preliminary discussions with larger local water and sewage authorities associated with the sale of the assets of the Ligonier Township Municipal Authority (LTMA). The sale of the LTMA's assets could generate additional capital for the Township to fund various projects without interruption in the water and sewage services provided to our rate payers.

Before any decisions can be made; however, it is necessary to value the LTMA's assets and access its liabilities. The expenses of the initial valuations are being assumed by the prospective purchasers. one of those prospective purchasers, the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County (MAWC), recently sent correspondence to LTMA requesting detailed financial information in order to determine its value. These types of requests are routine in these circumstances and are a part of any prospective purchaser's due diligence.

Once the initial valuations are completed, the Township will commission an independent valuation for comparison purposes. No decision has been made to sell the LTMA's assets, and transfer responsibility for its debt, to any other entity until all valuations are finalized.

We are hopeful that the Board of LTMA will be responsive to these requests and cooperate with the valuation process.

News from the Ligonier Township Police
Due to the increase in the number of dog complaints we would like to take this opportunity to remind residents of state dog laws. All dogs must be kept secured either by leash, kennel, fence, etc. Owners and/or handlers must maintain control of dogs at all times. This is not only in the best interest of the pet owner, but also for the safety of the pet. Pet owners are also encouraged to show respect and courtesy to neighbors when walking their dogs. Please be sure to clean up all feces after your dog. If your dog is an outside pet, please be certain that it is property housed and protected from inclement weather, in both the heart of summer and the cold of winter. In any case, your dog must have proper shelter, bedding, food and water at all times.

Additionally, I would like to remind residents that Ligonier Township is a recognized medication collection site. There is a collection box located inside the lobby of the Ligonier Township Municipal Building. Medications, whether prescription or over the counter, can be dropped off. If you have questions, please feel free to call my office at 724-238-5105.

Sewage Repair Issues
Here is some information on what to do if you experience problems with your septic system. The first thing to do is contact the Township Sewage Enforcement Officer (SEO). The SEO will work with you to determine what the problem is, what is causing the problem, if a repair will have a reasonable chance of functioning for long term and if a permit is required. It has come to our attention that people are attempting to complete repairs without contacting the SEO and in most cases these repairs are costing a lot of money and they are only working for a short period of time. In some cases there are other things that can be done that are less expensive than replacing a septic system. The following are examples of repairs that require a permit: replacement or enlargment to treatment tanks, replacement of pumps, repairs to a distribution box and distribution (leach) field and replacing piping between house, treatment tanks and distribution field. When you contact the SEO you will be working with someone who deals with these issues and knows about the options available. The SEO will also oversee the repairs to make sure the contractor is completing them correctly. The Township SEO is Mike D'Arrigo. You can reach him at (814) 255-6901.
