ADDRESS CONCERNS TO JUST YOUR COMMISSIONER?  A
lthough you are frequently told to address your issues through your one Commissioner, your Commissioner may have a completely different point of view , so he may not present your position on an issue to the Board at all .  Since all the other  Board members  vote on each issue, it is important that they understand how others are being affected - even those not in their Ward.
   Also your lone Commissioner, even if he IS presenting your view, is easily (and most frequently) out-voted by the other 14, as has been seen in spades in important issue after  important issue - especially zoning issues. The St Michael's debacle, The Wawa debacle, and others show us that the actions of one affect us all re: amount of greenspace, traffic, stormwater, etc. .... .  These are the things that create quality of life and bring the value to our homes for ALL of us.   So it is important  to address ALL those who will be voting on your concerns.

   ATTEND A MEETING  Besides calling or emailing a single Commissioner ( or several or all )  you can attend a Board meeting - where we residents have worked hard to enable you to have full speaking rights - even to bring up an issue that the Commissioners did NOT put on the agenda.  You have 3 mins at the beginning of a Board meeting for agenda items and 3 minutes at the end of each full Board meeting for open comment on any topic . At Committee meeting you are supposed to have 3 minutes after each item is presented to address it - and  Committee heads can allow you to speak freely at the end of any Committee  meeting to address topics not on the agenda . In 2020 they removed some of thos rights - by creating he Committee of the Whole which allows 5 minutes before any of the topics is expxplained and then allows them top skip over the Committee meetings - effectively removing your informed speech. I hope you will work to change this  - as the actions were completely against the public interest.    See Public Comment for more info .

Knowledge is power. Stay informed to help shape your community and make a difference.

Abington Township, with John Spiegelman in charge, revamped the entire Township website at the end of 2015 and broke all the links to the information we had archived on this site for you.   In 2017, Manager Richard Manfredi arrived and assigned someone not qualified to redo the entire website again. They not only broke all archived links we had reinstated, but made everything as impossible to find as they could. Nearly all of our comments and recommedations to fix the Township website have been wholly ignored.

So we do need volunteers to work together helping the Township create a site that is functional and accessible.  We will be reinstating links as we find them....if the data is still available. So... please let us know if you find a broken link. Send us the URL of the link  and the name of the page it is on, and if we can, we'll reinstate it.
Thanks for the help.
