The Pennsylvania Second Class Township Code requires the election of a 3-member Board of Auditors, each serving 6-year terms. The primary function of the Board of Auditors is to set compensation for the current Township Board of Supervisors. The Board of Auditors meets annually, on the day immediately following the Board of Supervisors Reorganization meeting in January.
Lower Southampton Township contracts with an independent certified public accounting firm to provide an annual audit of the Township’s financial statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. The duties of the Board of Elected Auditors are, therefore, limited to setting compensation for the Board of Supervisors per Second Class Township Code.
