The following is a list of community councils within the Borough, this list updated when the community councils provide information to the Borough Clerk's Office. Community Councils are non-profit, voluntary, self-governing associations composed of residents located within geographical areas designated as community council districts by the Borough assembly. Community councils afford citizens an opportunity for maximum community involvement, and are intended to give people a method to work together in a manner that will have an impact on their community's development and services. Please note that community councils are not agencies or subgroups of the Borough, we do not maintain pages for them, but do advertise their meetings on the Public Meetings Calendar.
