 Something Abington Residents  Should Know  -
           where the "work" is done on the issues in our Township

While most issues of government are approved at the Full Board of Commissioners Meetings held monthly,  (generally on the 1st Thursday) , the work on any of these issues is most often delegated to a Committee or Council. It is in these meetings that the discussions are held and the input by citizens is most effective. The Committee or Council  then makes  its recommendations  to the full Board of Commissioners who exercise final approvals. Because this is the process, citizens have been trying to get the Township "WORKING meetings" all  filmed and aired on Comcast Channel 43, our Public Access, Government and Education Channel.   Those who are interested in joining this effort, or learning more about it should click on Channel 43.   As of 3-11 Some meetings are there - but many are not that would be more than helpful in keeping residents informed.
