The Central Keystone Council of Governments is pleased to welcome our newest Member Municipality, Howe Township, Perry County.  Our staff looks forward to meeting the unique challenges of this new Municipality and delivering professional, efficient, and cost-effective inspection services to their residents.

Howe Township will be utilizing both UCC Building Permit and Zoning services, and we anticipate this “one-stop shop” will streamline the permitting process for township residents as it has in our other full-service Municipalities.   CKCOG Code Enforcement staff will also be enforcing the Township Property Maintenance Code to help ensure a safe and sanitary atmosphere for residents.

If you are a resident of any of these Municipalities and have questions regarding our services, please contact us by phone at 570-522-1326/1-877-457-9401 or email to
