It was the decision of the Board to reinstate fees for fire hydrants and street lights in 2016. This was not a new resolution, nor did 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 past 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 had fire hydrants and/or street lights near thier property seen 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

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.
