Latest Breaking News



West Manchester Township is offering the following tips to follow once the snow begins to fall:

  • Ensure proper ventilation of furnaces, water heaters and other appliances that vent outside. Clear snow from exhaust pipes.
  • Clear snow from gas meters. Heavy snow can cover the regulator vent and block gas service.
  • Check on vulnerable neighbors, friends and relatives during and after the storm. Make sure they have an adequate supply of food, water and medicine.
  • Do not call 911 to report power outages unless the outage poses a threat to safety or property (contact numbers for electricity providers are listed below).
  • Never use a generator indoors or in an attached garage. A portable generator exhausts a deadly gas called carbon monoxide that is odorless and colorless. Place generators outside where exhaust fumes will not enter into enclosed spaces. The generator should be protected from direct exposure to rain and snow. Follow manufacturer instructions.
  • Clear fire hydrants near your home or business from snow so the hydrants are readily accessible to fire departments. Fire hydrants should be cleared of snow from about 3 feet in each direction, with a clear path to the street.
  • Clear snow off all exposed surfaces of vehicles before driving, including the top of the vehicle.
  • Take care not to overexert when shoveling snow. Push the snow as you shovel because it’s easier on your back than lifting the snow. Make sure to stretch before and after snow removal. Take breaks as necessary.

Residents can visit for more preparedness information.

Shiloh Water Fluoride Update

Recently, the West Manchester Township Board of Supervisors was notified that the Shiloh Water Authority has decided to move forward with the removal of fluoride from the water system without Board of Supervisors approval.  Township staff has verified with the Pennsylvania D.E.P that approval from the local legislative body is not required, as first requested by the Shiloh Water Authority. The Board of Supervisors previously made a recommendation to the Shiloh Water Authority that fluoride not be removed from the water system until more compelling information be presented to substantiate this change.  The Board of Supervisors urges residents to contact the Shiloh Water Authority directly at (717) 764-3624 or to express your thoughts regarding this important matter.  Concerned residents should also contact the Pennsylvania D.E.P. by mail during the required open comment period. 


The next Yard Waste Collections is scheduled for Saturday, August 24.

Place yard waste in a container which can be emptied, biodegradable brown paper bags or bundle it with biodegradable twine in easy-to handle bundles.  Bundles may be no longer than 5′ in length and not weigh more than 30 pounds each.  Branches may not exceed 6″ in diameter.  Yard waste must be placed at the curb on scheduled pick up day before 6:00 AM.  An unlimited number of bags or bundles may be placed at the curb.
