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.

Code Enforcement
We've been getting some questions about the difference between what a Code Enforcement Officer's role is versus that of a Zoning Officer.
The Code Enforcement Officer administers to the Planning Commission and enforces the Township Nuisance Ordinance. They are also responsible for taking building permit applications that require approval and review for compliance with our building code official for compliance with the Uniform Construction Code (UCC) The Code Enforcement officer for Ligonier Township is Keith Ashley and James Nieusma. Their hours of availability are 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

All complaints or inquires start with the Zoning and Code office, and both positions report directly to the Township Manager. All applications for Code or Zoning are available on the Township website or at the Township office.

The Zoning Officer for Ligonier Township is Jim Nieusma, and his hours of availability will be from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM. The zoning officer administers the zoning ordinance and will process appeals to the Zoning Hearing (ZHB). The zoning permit application will be reviewed by the zoning officer and in some cases only a zoning permit will be required. Where both permits are, a review will be completed by both officers and permits will be issued together. The Zoning Hearing Board operates independently of the Township Supervisors in hearing appeals to the zoning ordinance.

News from the Ligonier Township Police
Summer construction season is in full swing. It's time to plan ahead for delays and to make sure that you leave plenty of time to travel to and from your destinations. With construction on the Ligonier Diamond and the replacement of the bridges at Peoples and Clifford Woods roads, we are well aware that traffic can get very busy at times. Our Public Works Director has multiple road projects for his crew as well and we want to ask that motorists be sure to slow down and watch for work crews and first responders.

Another concern is that summer is a time to enjoy fireworks. Please be advised that all fireworks displays throughout the year must have a permit from the township. You can obtain one in the Zoning Office.

Please remember that fireworks safety is important:

Fireworks cannot be ignited or discharged on a public or private property without express permission of the owner.

They cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building.

They cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building.

They cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure.

They cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.

In conclusion, we are working hard to coordinate efforts with Ligonier Borough and Ligonier Township Police Departments to combine both forces and their equipment to be a regionalized police depa1iment. Please watch the newspaper and the township website for a date to join us at a community meeting this summer where a plan will be unveiled for how this partnership will work. We value your opinion and we want your input on how you think the force can work best for you and our community.
