INTRODUCED BY MARTIN, HUTCHINSON, SCHWANK AND KEARNEY,

REFERRED TO LOCAL GOVERNMENT, MAY 31, 2019
AN ACT
Amending the act of May 1, 1933 (P.L.103, No.69), entitled "An
act concerning townships of the second class; and amending,

The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

amended and the section is amended by adding a subsection to
read:
Section 606. Compensation of Supervisors.--(a) Supervisors

not in excess of the following:
Township
Population

Compensation
not more than 4,999 [$1,875] $3,145

25,000 to 34,999 [$4,375] $7,335
35,000 or more [$5,000] $8,385
Salaries are payable monthly or quarterly for the duties imposed
by this act. The population is determined by the latest official
census figures, except that no township shall be required to
reduce the salary of a supervisor as a result of a decrease in
population. The compensation of supervisors, when employed as
roadmasters, laborers, secretary, treasurer, assistant
secretary, assistant treasurer or in any employe capacity not
otherwise prohibited by this or any other act, shall be
determined by the board of auditors, at an hourly, daily,
weekly, semi-monthly or monthly basis, which shall be comparable
to compensation paid in the locality for similar services. The
board of supervisors may establish a mileage allowance, under
the act of July 20, 1979 (P.L.156, No.51), referred to as the
Uniform Mileage Fee Law, to be paid to officers and employes for
the use of a personal vehicle when required and actually used
for authorized township business. No supervisor may receive
compensation as an employe for attending a meeting of the board
of supervisors. Supervisors may continue to be compensated under
prior law until such time as an ordinance is enacted under this
act. Any change in salary, compensation or emoluments of the
elected office becomes effective at the beginning of the next
term of the supervisor. A decision by the township to pay, in
whole or in part, to include supervisors not employed by the
township in insurance plans, as authorized in subsection (c),
shall not be implemented with regard to any nonemploye
supervisor until the beginning of the next term of that
supervisor.

(a.1) Notwithstanding subsection (a), the board of
supervisors may provide that a supervisor shall receive
compensation on a per-meeting basis based on attendance of
supervisors. Total annual compensation may not exceed the
amounts specified in subsection (a). Compensation shall only be
payable for duly advertised public meetings in which a
supervisor participated. If the board of supervisors has
provided that supervisors shall receive compensation on a per-
meeting basis, the board of supervisors may provide for the
forfeiture of up to one-twelfth of the annual compensation of a
supervisor or impose another appropriate penalty for each
unexcused absence from a regularly scheduled meeting.

Section 2. This act shall take effect in 60 days.
