The Salisbury Township municipal building houses the office of the township manager, assistant manager/director of…More finance, director of planning, zoning and code enforcement and the tax collector. The police and public works departments are next door in the municipal annex. Salisbury Township was founded in 1753, but through a series of annexations lost much of its land to neighboring municipalities. It consists of 11.3 square miles, the second smallest township in Lehigh County. It is a largely suburban residential area that flanks the east and south sides of Allentown. The township's east and west sides are not contiguous.
