North Fayette Township operates under Pennsylvania’s Second Class Township Code. According to the Pennsylvania Second Class Township Code, the Supervisors are vested with executive and legislative powers to establish policies and regulations with the purpose of maintaining the health, safety and welfare of our residents.
Each Supervisor is elected for a 6-year term. The terms are staggered so that one Supervisor is elected during the municipal elections every 2 years. Supervisors are part-time and do not have offices located in the municipal building. However members do have mailboxes in the Administrative Offices where they can receive correspondence.
The Board of Supervisors appoint the members of the various advisory boards and authority boards.
