PA Borough Code

Pennsylvania Borough Code
In Pennsylvania, each type of municipality is created by a municipal code, which contains the form of government, delegates certain mandatory responsibilities to that municipality, and provides municipal officials with the authority to offer optional services and to enact certain regulations. The municipal codes provide the rules that the municipality must follow.  As a Borough, Myerstown operates under the Borough Code, which establishes borough council as the governing body and charges council with the governance of the borough, including hiring employees, adopting a budget, approving expenses, and adopting ordinances or local laws.
