Welcome to Lower Providence Township.

 

Lower Providence Township recently took delivery of a new dump truck. This truck will be used for daily jobs in the Township as well as salting and plowing streets during the winter months. The truck replaces a current vehicle in the daily fleet that is 20 years old. The current

20-year-old vehicle will now be used as a dedicated street sweeper.  We are proud to show how tax dollars are being used to maintain the Township’s infrastructure.
