The Vernon Township Sanitary Authority meets on the third Monday of each month at 7:00pm
Sanitary Authority Members:
Jan Metzler, Chairwoman
The Vernon Township Sanitary Authority began laying public sewer lines in the late 1960's to provide public sewage facilities for the businesses and residents of Vernon Township. In 1972, a large portion of the Township was sewered. In 2003, an agreement was passed between VTSA and MASA regarding the sewage operations and treatment.
The Sanitary Authority utilizes two sewage treatment plants, and seven pump stations.
Approximately 200 customers were added on for service from Vernon Sanitary Authority in 2005 due to the extension of public sewer lines along Harmonsburg Road.
Effective February 1, 2006 the sewage rates are a flat rate of $35.00 per month, per Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU). The tapping fees and EDU's are established by the Sanitary Authority Engineer and approved by the Sanitary Authority Board.
Burning permits are now being issued through Vernon Township Municipal Building.
You must obtain a permit if you are planning any open burning – the permit does not allow for burning of anything except for wood products, you can not burn any furniture, garbage, or any other materials. If you burn any other materials, the police maybe called and you will not be able to obtain a future permit.
Starting with the first quarter of 2012. Berkheimer Associates will be collecting the local 1% wage tax for the businesses located in Vernon Township. Quarterly forms are available at www.hab-inc.com.
