Plymouth Township Council
Plymouth Township Council establishes the policies, goals and objectives for the Executive, Administrative, and Advisory functions. There are 5 citizens who serve as council members, one for each district and one at large member. Elections are held every four years.
District 1: Dean N. Eisenberger, Sr., Chair 610-724-0157
District 2: Christopher G. Manero, 610-724-9577
District 3: Martin J. Higgins, 610-277-4721
District 4: Lenore Bruno , Vice Chair 610-724-1472

At the first meeting of the year, council elects a chairman and vice-chairman from the members. The chairman presides over meetings, attends ceremonial events and is empowered to sign legal documents.
Council determines all municipal polices that are not set forth in the charter or by state legislation. Council adopts ordinances and resolutions, votes appropriations, approves the budget, determines the tax rate and appoints citizens to serve on various advisory boards and commissions.
An ordinance is a formal enactment or law that has been adopted by Council. Before an ordinance is put into effect it’s called a proposed ordinance. All proposed ordinances must be advertised and discussed at a public Council meeting one month prior to adoption. Council then votes on the proposed ordinance. Current proposed ordinances are posted on our website and are advertised in the Times Herald.??
Resolutions are used to perform the day-to-day administrative tasks of the governing body: to appoint members to committees, to recognize merit, to state policy, to request action or to state that further action of a more substantial nature may lie in the future.
Plymouth Township’s current codified ordinances are available online from General Code.
