Board of Commissioners, 2012
Hatfield residents elect five Commissioners to four-year terms of office. Each Commissioner represents a geographical “Ward” of the township. The Commissioners are part time volunteers who make decisions on behalf of the 17,000+ residents in Hatfield Township. The Board of Commissioners meets twice a month to discuss and adopt policies for Hatfield’s local government services. These policy decisions include items such as land development applications, road improvements, public safety matters, capital improvement projects, and open space preservation. While each year may bring different projects and policies, the overarching goal of the Board of Commissioners is always to promote the health, safety, and welfare of the community.
To find out which ward you live in and which Commissioner represents you, please see the map at the bottom of this page.

Contacting your Township Commissioner
If you have questions or concerns about Hatfield Township services, you may first call the township offices, where staff professionals likely can help you. Visit the contact section for a list of township staff members and contact numbers.
However, if you have thoughts about improving Hatfield Township, or concerns about township activity, the Commissioners encourage you to contact them directly. Personal contact information for each Commissioner is available on their individual pages above.
In addition, you are encouraged to attend the regular public meetings of the Board of Commissioners. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Public comments and questions are taken at each meeting.
