Neighbors Helping Neighbors
The Commissioners and employees of Butler Township want to express our sincere thanks to EVERYBODY who donated for your thoughtful donations of food and cash.
Your generous donations enabled us to provide a substantial box and bags of both fresh produce, dairy and non-perishable items to dozens of residents of Butler Township. We are very proud of our township for answering the call for donations and your gift of cash made this food assistance possible for those experiencing food insecurity.
The outpouring of cash donations will enable us to provide additional support to future efforts to assist those residents who are in need through these next difficult months.
Butler County Employer of the Year Award
Butler Township was named Butler County Employer of the Year by the Tri County Workforce Investment Board at a meeting last week. The award highlights the collaboration of business and workforce development in Armstrong, Butler, and Indiana Counties. Butler Township has 44 full-time employees and three part-time employees. Over a third of those employees are older workers. Essential Road Department employees were provided with Personal Protective Equipment by the Township during the pandemic.
According to the Tri-County Board, Butler Township has shown a commitment to their employees and Butler County through their workforce programs as well as a history of partnerships with PA CareerLink.
Beginning Saturday, November 7, Preston Park will be softly re-opened. We do apologize for the delay and appreciate the patience park visitors have shown. Construction activities are still in progress affecting the restrooms and storm water pond so please avoid these areas at this time.
The park entrance is now accessed through the iron gates off of South Eberhart Road. Traffic circulation is one-way up the hill and around the flag pole.
Parking opportunities exist in a lot to the left of the road and diagonal.
