The First Class Township Code established the Vacancy Board. The Board consists of the elected Board of Commissioners plus one appointed member who is a registered elector of the township. The registered elector acts as the Vacancy Board Chair until another individual is appointed. Whenever a vacancy occurs in an elected office, the Board of Commissioners has 30 days to fill the position. In the event that the Board of Commissioners fails to fill the vacancy within the allotted time, the Vacancy Board then has 15 days to fill the vacancy.
