Environmental Advisory Council
Mission: The Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) was established to advise the Schuylkill Township Board of Supervisors on the protection, conservation and management of the use of natural resources like air, water and land in the Township in a sustainable way. The EAC also provides residents and commercial businesses with information useful in making more informed decisions regarding environmental issues through educational outreach programs and projects. The EAC is composed of eight volunteer residents of Schuylkill Township appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
To apply for an open position on the EAC, please fill out our Volunteer Application and send it with a letter of interest to the Township Manager. If you are applying for a specific and currently open position, you will be notified by the Township Manager’s Office following the application deadline whether you are being considered by the applicable entity. If you are submitting an application to be considered in the future as openings occur, you will be contacted by Township staff when the vacancy is announced in order to confirm your interest in this specific opportunity.
Meetings: 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
