Chester County Government is headquartered in West Chester, PA (approximately 30 miles west of Philadelphia) and is administered by a three-person Board of Commissioners, who are elected for four-year terms. The Board manages a large and diverse organization whose mission is to provide quality services in an efficient, cost effective manner. The Commissioners have selective policy-making authority to provide certain local services and facilities on a countywide basis. Accordingly, the commissioners are responsible for the management of the fiscal and administrative functions of the county.

East Marlborough Township

East Marlborough Township was established by the Pennsylvania State Legislature in 1729. East and West Marlborough Townships were carved out of the larger Marlborough Township, which was considered too unwieldy. East Marlborough is sixteen square miles in area and includes the world famous horticultural displays at Longwood Gardens, as well as New Bolton Center, the veterinary school of the University of Pennsylvania, where pioneering animal research is done.

We are the caretakers of several surviving Penn Oak Trees which were young trees when William Penn walked this land. In addition, there are several surviving stations of the Underground Railroads which assisted escaping slaves on their journey to freedom in the north. Local groups are working to restore one of the Underground Railroad Stations, located on US Route One.

Our all volunteer fire department is faced with the same tasks as the large city departments with the only exception being the lack of a paycheck. We like to associate with the two hundred plus years of tradition which overshadows the fire service in our country but we also try to watch carefully what is happening around us (big, big, big circle) so we may continue to provide our families, friends and neighbors the service they deserve.
