Board of Supervisors Compensation

Compensation for township supervisors is established by state law, governed by Section 606 of the Second Class Township Code. The annual salary of a supervisor is based on the population of the municipality. For townships with fewer than 5,000 residents, like Bear Creek Township, the salary is $1,875.00 per year. Supervisors also receive hourly compensation when employed as roadmasters, laborers, secretary, treasurer, assistant secretary, assistant treasurer or in any employe capacity not otherwise prohibited by the Second Class Township Code. The rate for such service is $10.00 per hour and is set by the Bear Creek Township board of auditors. The board of supervisors may receive a mileage allowance, under the Uniform Mileage Fee Law, for the use of a personal vehicle when required and actually used for authorized township business. No supervisor may receive compensation as an employee for attending a meeting of the board of supervisors.

To help the public understand the cost of government, the table below illustrates the compensation per supervisor, per year. Note that an " * " after the supervisors's name indicates that individual also serves as the Township Road Master.
