History

Pennsbury is a unique borough in that it is entirely a municipality of condo style houses, having been built in 1973. In 1976 there was a disagreement with Robinson Township over proposed sewage treatment fees, which triggered the self government attempt. In 1977 it separated from the surrounding township and became an Allegeny county borough.[1] The words of the Declaration of Secession included "that we can govern our affairs more effectively and equitable than a distant and disinterested authority". The first Council of officials and a Mayor were elected and took office in January, 1977.[2]
