It has been requested that the Supervisors of Lehman Township pass what is being called a Second Amendment Resolution by the Pike County Second Amendment Sanctuary.  As affirmed when each Township Supervisor took office, the Supervisors of Lehman Township continue to support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of this Commonwealth.  While the Supervisors appreciate the sentiment behind a proposed resolution which expresses a desire to up hold our rights as citizens, it is simply not within the purview of the jurisdiction of the Lehman Township Supervisors to pass a resolution expressing an opinion as to the Constitutionality of current or future State or Federal legislation.  That task is expressly vested in our judiciary.  As elected Township officials, we must take a position which is representative of all our residents, and we will continue to do so, and to serve all our residents proudly.

The Scenic Rural Character Preservation Program helps to protect Pike County’s clean water, wildlife habitat, and recreational areas, and supports improved county and municipal planning.

Lehman Township is a Second Class Township governed by a Board of Supervisors, which are elected at large by the qualified voters of the Township. Each Board of Supervisors is elected for the term of six years. Their responsibilities include: to establish commissions and authorities, to maintain the roads, to prepare the building and zoning regulations, and to ensure that the community’s health, safety and welfare needs are adequately addressed. The Township Secretary/Treasurer, who is appointed by the Board of Supervisors, is in charge of all Township monies.

Lehman Township has been an established community since 1829. It is a residential community with beautiful scenery, surrounded by the Delaware National Park Service. The Township lies between Porter, Middle Smithfield and Delaware Townships. It is the home of the famous Bushkill Falls.
