Be Safe. Click It Or Ticket.
Fri, May 27th, 2016
For many, buckling up in a vehicle is second nature. Open the door, sit down, start the car, and buckle your seat belt. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in the United States in 2014, 9,385 people lost their lives as a result of not completing this simple, essential step.
That's why, at various times through June 5, the Whitpain Township Police Department will join NHTSA and over 370 Pennsylvania Municipal Law Enforcement Agencies in an aggressive Click It or Ticket seatbelt enforcement campaign. This enforcement period comes during one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.
Will Click It or Ticket be enough to get you to buckle your seat belt? Think about it - this is the perfect opportunity to ingrain this life-saving habit into your daily driving routine. So next time you head out on the road, remember: Click It or Ticket. Every trip, every time.

Supervisors Seek Tax Reform Bill In Harrisburg
Thu, May 19th, 2016
The Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday urging the Pennsylvania Legislature to reform the Sterling Act, which permits the City of Philadelphia to collect wage taxes from residents and non-residents working in the city.
Unlike the Local Tax Enabling Act, a loophole in the Sterling Act does not require Philadelphia to remit any portion of the wage tax to the municipality in which the taxpayer resides.
"This inequity in the tax structure means that Whitpain residents working in Philadelphia won't see any portion of their wage tax returned to their home municipality where it can be used for infrastructure improvements, public safety, and open space preservation," said Vice Chairman Melissa Murphy Weber. "We are simply asking for changes that would result in one percent of the wage tax that Whitpain residents pay to Philadelphia being returned to the Township."
Other municipalities in Bucks and Montgomery County have joined a growing chorus of voices seeking legislative reform to the Sterling Act.
