Ligonier Valley Fire Companies Fund Raiser
Fire protection is one of the responsibilities of municipal government. Here in Ligonier Township, we benefit by having this critical service provided by a network of all volunteer fire companies. The alternative - turning to a paid system - would be far too costly to imagine. So, it's important that we maintain the volunteer system that we have. The annual fund drive of Ligonier Valley Fire Companies is currently underway. This direct mail campaign is conducted entirely by our local volunteer firefighters who are themselves members of our local, township and borough, fire companies. The proceeds of this campaign support all four fire companies (Darlington, Ligonier, Waterford and Wilpen) and 95 cents of every dollar donated goes to them. These volunteer fire companies offer a tremendous value for township residents and we encourage all Ligonier Township residents and businesses to show your support and contribute to this campaign.

Ligonier Township Fall Taxes (school) were mailed out on August 1, 2014. If you do not receive your statement, please contact the Tax Office. Failure to receive a statement does not relieve the taxpayers of the responsibility of payment. Tax statements are no longer mailed to the mortgage companies for payment. Taxpayers are responsible for sending the tax statement to the mortgage companies. When paying installment payments, the last day to pay your 1st school installment payment is September 30; last day to pay your 2nd installment payment is October 31; the last day to pay your 3rd installment payment is November 30. If you pay after these dates on your installment payment there will be a 10% penalty added. The last day to pay school taxes (fall) at discount is September 30, 2014. If paying by mail or through the door slot, make sure to enclose the statement and a self-addressed, stamped envelope with the payment if you wish to receive a receipt. Ligonier Township spring taxes (county and township) are at penalty until December 31, 2014. An after-hour, drop-off slot is available to accept payments before or after normal business hours.
