Guidelines for Conduct at Public Meetings

The Charlestown Township Board of Supervisors recognizes the right of its citizens to present public remarks on Township issues and is very interested in your comments on the topics being discussed.

For items not listed on this evening’s agenda, the Citizens’ Forum is provided at the beginning of the meeting following Announcements. This is an opportunity for residents to address the Board; however this period is not a forum for debate or lengthy discussion. Please plan to limit your comments to three minutes to allow everyone an opportunity to be heard. If the Board determines that the subject requires more time for discussion, consideration, or research, the Chairman will schedule it as an agenda item either at the end of the meeting under “Other Business” or place it on a future meeting’s agenda.

For items that are listed on this evening’s agenda, the Board first hears from the presenter(s), and follows up with questions and discussion from its members. The Chairman will then open this discussion to the public for your comments and questions before any vote is taken. In the interest of time, we respectfully request that you refrain from reiterating comments already directed to the Board.

The Chairman may change the order of the agenda items during the meeting depending on the public’s interest.

Minutes are taken by hand for our public meetings. We ask that you preface your comments by stating your name, spelling it if necessary, and providing your address. Please speak slowly and clearly for the record.

How to Add an Item to a Future Agenda:

Contact the Township Manager, Linda Csete, via email ( or phone (610-240-0326) so we can coordinate on submitting all materials in advance of the next scheduled meeting. Depending on the complexity of the request, a lead time of one to three weeks will be required.
