BREITUNG TOWNSHIP HAS
TWO DROPBOXES FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE!


You may utilize either one to drop off utility/tax payments, absentee ballots/applications, or any other Township correspondence.  The first box is located to the right of the front doors of the Township Office Building and requires you to park and walk up to it.  The second drop-box is located on the south side of the Township Office building, in front of the Board Room entrance, and allows you to drive-up and place your items in the box without having to leave your car.

PLEASE NOTE:  THE NEW DROP-BOX LOOKS LIKE A USPS MAILBOX, HOWEVER, IT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN TOWNSHIP CORRESPONDENCE OR PAYMENTS.  PLEASE DO NOT PLACE YOUR USPS MAIL IN THE BOX.
