Zoning Hearing Board Members Needed

Jermyn Borough is looking for interested residents to serve on the Zoning Hearing Board. We are currently in need of one member and two alternate members. The zoning hearing board meets as needed, sometimes twice per year, sometimes not at all. Alternate members are only required when regular board members cannot make a hearing. Zoning Hearings are required when:

— an applicant is denied a zoning permit

— an applicant requires a variance or special exception to zoning rules

If you are interested in serving Jermyn by becoming a member of the Zoning Hearing Board, please send an email to
