Public Notices in Pennsylvania

Public notices inform citizens about tax increases, zoning changes, school closures, environmental proposals impacting health and property, and other critical issues before local governments take action.

The website linked below is a compilation of public notices published throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It is a public service made possible by the newspapers of Pennsylvania at no cost to taxpayers. This easy-to-use website is designed to assist citizens who want to know more about the actions of local, county and state government, as well as events occurring in the local and state court systems.

We offer an email notification option for those who routinely search public notices, need to save search criteria, print multiple notices simultaneously, or receive automatic search results daily.

Pennsylvania’s newspapers remain the most reliable place to read and establish legal proof of public notices, with 7 in 10 Pennsylvania adults reading a print or digital newspaper each week.1 Moreover, 92% of Pennsylvania registered voters agree that public notices should be published in print by local newspapers and favor current state law that requires this process.2
