Welcome to Lower Milford Township!
Information for new residents
First and foremost, Lower Milford Township has a long and cherished history of agriculture and farming. Pennsylvania has protection for farmers, and we take our obligations to our farmers seriously. All residents who may be new to a rural area, should start with the Right To Farm Act. It limits the actions that can be taken against farms for what otherwise might be a nuisance - after all, farms have operating hours dictated by the weather, and sometimes can create dust, noise and odor. The general rule is if a farm was there before you, you can't complain about the farm's emissions.
Our Utilities are serviced by Verizon (telephone), Service Electric (cable TV), and PPL (electric). Residents can contract with satellite TV companies if they wish. Most homes outside of Limeport Village are on-lot well and septic. The Village of Limeport is handled by the LMT waste water treatment facility. A portion of the Beverly Hills development is serviced by the Lehigh County Authority.
Our Post Office is located in Limeport, at 1540 Blue Church Road.
Lower Milford Township does not issue moving permits, we don't require a certificate of occupancy on home resale, and you will need to contact Southern Lehigh School District with enrollment questions.
Trash and recycling are handled by private contract only. We have a leaf only collection area behind the township building. Questions on large items and electronics should be handled with your contracted trash hauler or in accordance with Lehigh County Solid Waste Management.
Our real estate taxes are billed in April and collected by the Tax Collector. Although the Tax Collector's Office is in the Township building, Township officials and staff do not collect or process tax payments. Click for more information on the Tax Office. Earned income tax (EIT) is collected by Berkheimer Associates.
Residents of Lower Milford are serviced by Lower Milford Fire Company No. 1, located on Limeport Pike. Our Fire Company is made up of volunteers who are always looking for assistance. Ambulance service depends on your location, and is divided between Macungie Ambulance, Upper Saucon, or Upper Perkiomen. Always dial 911 for any emergency and help will be on the way. To assist our first responders, we require 3" reflective address numbers viewable from the road. The Fire Company runs a fundraiser which allows you to purchase reflective address numbers.
