An authority is Pennsylvania’s method for avoiding the state constitution’s crippling limit on government indebtedness. Easttown's Municipal Authority is responsible for planning and constructing the sewer system. Authority members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors; however, the authority is a separate legal corporation not responsible directly to the board. The authority finances sewer construction by floating bonds, then leases the sewers to the township, which is responsible for system operation. Township fees charged to users of the sewers pay for both operation and lease expenses. The authority uses its funds to pay off the bonds.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:30 PM and, if needed, on the 4th Tuesday.
*Members are appointed to a 5-year term
