No Township meetings for the week.

Drop boxes for mail ballots will be available for residents at five select municipal buildings in Lehigh County beginning May 2, 2022. On September 17th, 2020, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled that drop boxes will be allowed for the upcoming Elections. As a result, the Lehigh County Election Board finalized five locations.

You can view them when you click (HERE). Please note North Whitehall Township was not chosen as a location.

All locations will have drop boxes inside the building and will be available for use during normal municipal business hours. Ballots can be dropped off at these locations instead of by mail or by handing them to a Voter Registration Office employee. The drop box available at the Lehigh County Government Center will be available 24/7. YOU MAY ONLY DROP OFF YOUR BALLET.

Even prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, North Whitehall Township had begun planning security and technology upgrades that would provide protection and efficiency for their staff, visitors, volunteers, and officials. Planned technology upgrades included purchasing a secure server, installing fiber-optic high-speed internet, and upgrading the phone system. Planned security upgrades included installing a new security system, access control system, and bullet-resistant service counters and windows as well as upgrading security cameras.

The Township approached Senator Pat Browne seeking funding opportunities to assist with these important improvements. The Senator was able to help us secure $68,000 in funding for the Township that will enable successful completion of all of the planned improvements.

To date, several of the improvements have been completed and have exceeded expectations. High-speed internet and server upgrades proved vital for employees who were forced to work remotely at the height of the pandemic. As the Township returns to a sense of normal operations the access control and service counter upgrades will provide safety and security for visitors and staff.

The Township thanks Senator Pat Browne for his assistance in ensuring the safety of the Township’s employees, visitors and residents.

The Pa State Construction Code requires a building permit for any above-ground swimming pool 24 inches or higher. The pool permit process also includes the installation of a 48 inch high fence to secure the pool. A pool that is 48 inches or higher and has a locking ladder may not be required to install a fence. That decision is up to the building inspector. All in-ground pools require pool permits, fences and in some cases alarms on house doors that allow direct access to the pool.

There is no such thing as a temporary pool. If it is installed even for a short period time and is 24 inches or over, it requires a permit. Pool retailers are giving you false information if they tell you no permit is required. This includes pools with blow up or water filled side walls.

No pool, even with a proper permit, is allowed to be placed in the front yard of a home. Failure to immediately remove an illegal pool may result in civil penalties including up to $1,000. fine per day. If you need assistance regarding a pool permit, please contact the Permit Office.

Our Soldier Campaign for sending care packages needs your support! Our country still has deployed troops overseas and we need to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to the brave men and women serving our nation. We have 4 men deployed overseas from the area.

Ideas include tuna in pouches, hot chocolate, popcorn, instant oatmeal and soups, small boxes of cereal, snack bars, cookies, granola bars, energy bars, Tastykakes or Little Debbie's, wrapped hard candy, chewing gum, lip balm, dental floss, foot/boot powder, wet ones, DVD movies, zip-lock bags for their personal items and anything you can think of that our soldiers would enjoy over the upcoming holidays.

Reminder to residents that if you know of someone or have a soldier in your family and would like care packages mailed to them, please let us know. Remember, the Holidays are coming and our Soldiers need some "goodies" from home.

Burning of leaves and yard waste is not permitted at any time as per North Whitehall Township Ordinance 2008-02. Persons found guilty of burning may face fines of up to $1000.00 per offense. Please use the Township yard waste facility or place your leaves out for Township pickup.
