Overview

As provided by the Home Rule Charter (PDF), the voters of Radnor give legislative and executive authority to a Board of Commissioners. The Board is Radnor's governing body. It consists of 7 members, each representing one of the 7 wards comprising the Township.

Ward boundaries are redrawn every 10 years (following the decennial U.S. census) to provide each voter in the township equal representation. A commissioner is elected for a 4-year term by the voters of the ward and is compensated $2,100 per year in accordance with the Home Rule Charter.

Responsibilities
The board's chief responsibilities include supervising township operations, establishing an annual budget, levying taxes, and passing necessary policy and regulatory ordinances. The board also appoints principal officials to run the day-to-day affairs of the township, and it appoints members to advisory boards, commissions, and authorities.

To ensure citizens an active role in local government, the charter mandates that the Board of Commissioners routinely conduct public meetings and provide voters with the right to remove elected officials by recall election and to initiate and repeal ordinances through initiative and referendum petitions.
