 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.

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.
