On Monday, March 12 at 7PM the regular monthly Commissioner's Meeting will be held at the new township building.
Among the items to be discussed:
- A new ordinance permitting dogs to be allowed in the park as long as they were on 6 feet or shorter leashes and are kept away from ball fields, spectator and concession stands. Under these conditions dogs would be allowed in such 8th ward parks as the Grange, Powder Mill Park, Cadwalder Tract and Chatham Glen. Dogs would not be allowed in the Farwood Tot-lot due to its small size
- A new ordinance regulating fireworks usage in Haverford Township to put our ordinances in line with the new state laws which now permit a much wider array of fireworks.
- A resolution to close Karakung Drive to traffic on Sundays from April 22 - Nov 4 from dawn to dusk to allow for greater pedestrian access.
If you wish to speak on any of these matters or any other matters of concern at the regular Commissioner’s Meetings you can either be a registered speaker by contacting the township prior to the meeting or speak as an unregistered speaker by attending the meeting.
Should you have any concerns about these or other issues, please contact me.

Update 3/4/18 at 5:22pm - information on our storm restoration and clean up:
PECO reported that Storm Riley, with freezing rain, wet snow and strong winds, gusting to more than 50 mph, is one of the worst storms in PECO history. Currently Haverford Twp. still has about 7,000 residents without power. PECO crews and subcontractors from far away as, Canada, Mississippi, North Carolina and Florida are now working in the community to make the necessary repairs. The amount of damage is enormous and this is a major challenge for PECO. We are being told that they HOPE to have the majority of township residents restored by late Tuesday but there still might be a few outages that will take until Wednesday or Thursday to correct.
• As of 8 a.m., approximately 125,000 PECO customers are currently without electric service:
Bucks County: 18,500
Chester County: 9,000
Delaware County: 53,000
Montgomery County: 39,700
Philadelphia County: 4,000
York County: 1,400
Overall, about 630,000 customers were impacted by the storm. Crews have safely restored service to more than 505,000 customers.
Township personnel have responded in the most professional manner and we are extremely fortunate to have highly equipped and trained public works staff under the leadership of Mr. Dougherty. Thus far, the crews have cleared 45 trees and now must wait until PECO clears the wires for the remaining trees before we can tackle the additional destruction.
Residents in need of warming center, free wifi, or location to charge their portable equipment can go to either the YMCA or the Bon Air Fire Company. If conditions worsen, we will certainly open locations in the township.
