Aleppo Township is governed by the Pennsylvania First Class Township Code. Click here to access that code. Locally, we are generally governed by several sets of local laws, which are also known as “ordinances.” Our ordinance book is available for public review at the Township Building and at the Sewickley Public Library.
Our ordinances are also available online.
The bulk of our local laws are covered in our Township Ordinances and address some of the common regulations such as noise, property maintenance, and solicitation. Click here to access our Township Ordinances.
