Wallace Township Resolution No. #2016-10, a Resolution establishing the Wallace Township Real Estate Tax for Calendar Year 2017 was passed at the December 1, 2016, BOS Meeting. This Resolution states that NO real property taxes will be imposed by Wallace Township pursuant to the official 2017 tax rates on real property within the Township.
Wallace and West Brandywine Townships create agreement for shared police coverage
Starting January 21st, 2016, the West Brandywine Police Department will begin limited patrols in Wallace Township. While their focus will largely be traffic enforcement (speeding, running stop signs, reckless driving), they might also be first responders to emergency situations. The Townships currently have a one year agreement, and the police service is paid on a per hour basis (so Wallace Township only pays when the officers are in Wallace). Both Townships are eager for this agreement to continue for many years to come. This agreement was implemented with NO increase in taxes to the residents of Wallace Township, and Wallace Township still does not have a Real Estate tax for 2016.
If you have an emergency, you should still call 911, and they will dispatch the proper police unit. The Pennsylvania State Police have done a fantastic job for us the last several years, and we look forward to that continued service from them, while supplementing it with the great officers of West Brandywine Police Department.
Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission project
The PA Turnpike Commission is in the early planning stages of a construction project to widen the turnpike from the Downingtown to Morgantown exchanges. The turnpike would go from 4 lanes to 6 (3 in each direction), replace the bridges along that section, and provide for additional shoulders.
If you are interested in knowing more, please visit the Turnpike project page HERE. The page will be updated as the project progresses.
The section that is in Wallace Township is MP 302-308.
