Upper Nazareth Township is governed by a five person Board of Supervisors elected by the people. The Board members serve staggered six year terms. The Board establishes policies for the operation of the Township Government which serves the people with police protection and zoning and subdivision regulations to protect the property owners. The Board is also responsible for a work force to maintain the Township roads, land and buildings.
The Board of Supervisors meets the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 7:00 p.m. with a workshop at 6:30 p.m. if necessary.
