The Board of Supervisors is posting a draft Sidewalk Ordinance for public review and comment for a period of 60 days. The purpose of the ordinance is not to mandate the installation of sidewalks at this time, other than as may be required by the Township’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance, but to establish regulations for the repair and maintenance of existing curbs and sidewalks and to allow the Township to seek grant funding which may be contingent upon the Township having a Sidewalk Ordinance in effect.
ONE UTILITY BILL COMING JUNE 2021
We will be merging the water & sewer billing systems producing one bill in June.
This billing will include the April and July water bills and their usage combined with the regular June sewer bill.
No late fees will be assessed for this invoice provided the entire invoice is paid in full before the next billing in September. Should any portion of this bill not be paid by that billing date, regular interest charges will be assessed.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions the Township will no longer be accepting cash for permits or utility payments.
Heidelberg Township has CANCELLED the Recycling Program until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
Welcome to Heidelberg Township
Heidelberg Township is located in the southeast corner of Lebanon County in the Susquehanna Valley. It covers 24.2 square miles with a population of over 4,000. The Township consists of three towns, Schaefferstown, Kleinfeltersville, Reistville, and a handful of small villages.
Known primarily for developing the oldest waterworks in the United States, Heidelberg Township boasts some of the most fertile farmland in Pennsylvania. Part of this land was set aside by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and is shared with neighboring Lancaster County. That area, known as Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, consists of more than 5,000 acres that provides habitat for waterfowl, farmland and forest wildlife, and includes a 400-acre shallow water lake.
