Resident Participation Needed

Butler Township has partnered with Slippery Rock University and their Public Relations/Communications Program and is seeking assistance from Township residents.

Two groups of Slippery Rock students have been tasked as part of their graduation requirements to create campaigns to educate residents about recycling options in the township and to encourage volunteerism in the recently merged Butler Township Volunteer Fire District.  Each group has created a survey to gather information to help them develop their campaign.  Please take a few minutes and help these students by completing each survey.
