Welcome to Nockamixon Township online.

We strive to populate this site with the information you need and want about our Township. If you can’t find what you’re seeking, we welcome suggestions for helpful content via the form on our Contact page.

Our five-member Board of Supervisors meet at 7:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month at our township building. Regular meetings are open to the public and respectful input is welcomed during public comment time. The deadline to enter items into the official BOS Meeting Agenda is 3:00 pm Thursday, prior to a meeting.

Executive Sessions are limited to topics of real estate, litigation or personnel, and to information that cannot be discussed in public for any number of reasons. A written request for an Executive Session must be received in the Township office the Thursday prior to the regularly scheduled BOS meeting at 3:00 PM. Executive Sessions are held at the discretion of the Chair, or if an emergency arises. In the latter case, those requesting an Executive Session must include a brief explanation of the need.
