From Bucks County to Erie County, the PA State Association of Boroughs (PSAB) has been serving boroughs across the Commonwealth for more than 100 years. PSAB represents the 957 boroughs that are home to more than 2.6 million residents. PSAB is a non-profit and non-partisan association, operated by the boroughs of the Commonwealth, to promote effective local government practices. Pennsylvania’s boroughs – urban to rural - band together to create effective change in our communities.
Today, boroughs represent 37.5 percent of all municipal governments in the Commonwealth. An average of 15 boroughs exists per county and nearly 25 percent of the state’s population resides in these communities. For perspective, more people live in Pennsylvania boroughs than live in the states of Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming, combined.
PSAB’s primary objectives are to provide legislative/regulatory representation at both the state and federal levels; to promote constructive and cooperative relationships among boroughs and between PSAB and other levels of government; to deliver training and technical assistance to borough officials; and to provide cost-effective programs and services.
