In January 2017, Concord Township reorganized as a home rule township. With the adoption of the Home Rule Charter, Concord Township’s governing body became Township Council. The five people that served as the Board of Supervisors at the end of 2016 then served as the newly named Township Council through 2017. Per the Home Rule Charter, two additional council members were elected in November 2017 and in January 2018 a full Council of seven members was seated. The adoption of the Home Rule Charter set a Council member’s term to four years.
Council members serve the entire 13.8 square mile area of Concord Township and are elected on an at-large basis rather than by district. There is no mayor. Township Council members serve in both legislative and executive roles. The Township Manager is responsible for the day-to-day business of the township.
Township Council regular monthly meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m., except:
- first Wednesday if said Tuesday is a legal holiday, or
- first Wednesday if said Tuesday is the general or primary election day.
If needed, an agenda meeting is held the last Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.
The public is welcome to these Council meetings.
