FOREWORD

History

This comprises the codification of the ordinances of the Township of Hampden. The Township was originally settled in 1731 and was incorporated as a Township on January 23, 1845, from parts of East Pennsboro Township and became a First Class Township on January 1, 1960. This Code of Ordinances was originally codified by Penns Valley Publishers on July 3, 1984 by Ordinance 84-6.

This recodification of the Code of Ordinances of the Township of Hampden was prepared by Penns Valley Publishers, a division of Fry Communications, Inc., and adopted by the Township Board of Commissioners on August 27, 1998 by Ordinance Number 98-07.

Organization

The Code contains four parts which are (1) the valid current ordinances of the Township contained in Chapters 1 through 27, (2) the Appendix, which lists by abstracted title all ordinances of a temporary or “one time” nature, (3) the Key to the disposition of each ordinance ever enacted by the Township, and (4) the Index, which is an alphabetical arrange­ment of subjects.

In the Code each Chapter is separated by a divider tab, and specific ordinances can be located by subject on the contents page at the beginning of each Chapter. The Index may also be used to search for a subject when one is looking for general information on a particular subject, or if it is not known in which Chapter the subject might be found. The Appendix consists of several general categories containing a chronological listing of short subject descriptions along with a reference to the original ordinance and its date of enactment, if known.

The Key to disposition indicates what action has been taken by the Board of Commissioners with regard to every ordinance ever enacted. An ordinance has either been (1) specifically repealed, (2) superseded by another ordinance, (3) is located in a Chapter of the Code book, or (4) is located in the Appendix. Annual tax rate and budget ordinances are located only in the Key. The Key is a cross reference to the original ordinance books of the Township, and to the location within the Code of each ordinance by number.
