Welcome to Dickinson Township

Dickinson Township is located in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Its history revolves around farms, the schools, churches, mills, stores, blacksmith shops and the businesses that supplied them as well as the industries of the mountains which developed the natural resources of wood, iron ore, sand, clay and phosphorous.

The February 10, 2016 Planning Commission Meeting is cancelled due to the lack of agenda items.

NOTICE: West Yellow Breeches Road Is now open, Thank you for your patience!!

Hover board - part toy, part transportation. These self-balancing scooters have quickly become the latest fad. However, many have been linked to fires and we urge you to be fire safe when using them.

It will also decrease the amount of prescription drugs being flushed into the septic system.


SEPTIC SYSTEM/PUMPING INSPECTION REMINDER

The Dickinson Township staff will forward reminders at the end of September to residents requiring septic pumping.

Proof of pumping and/or inspection shall be provided by the owner of the individual system within 30 days of the date of service to the Township.
