Snow Removal
The process of snow removal is vital to the safety of all of our residents and the general motoring public. Your cooperation is needed to enable us to do our job properly. If you are aware of specific weather-related problems, please report them to the township during business hours at 610-363-9450. For evenings and weekends, please call 610-692-5100.

  • Parking is prohibited on any township street during a snowstorm and until the street has been plowed for the full width. This is required by law, and violators may have their vehicles towed and be subject to a fine. This is critical on narrow streets and cul-de-sacs where maneuverability of the large plow trucks is essential.
  • Driveways - Do not clear the end of your driveway until the road has been plowed from curb-to-curb. This will save you time and frustration! If your street has not been plowed curb-to-curb, it will be. Please give us time to do our jobs. It is not our intention to annoy you! Do not shovel or plow the snow from your driveway into the street. This can cause accidents, and it is illegal to do so. Any snow you put into the street will only end up back in your or your neighbor’s yard.
  • Mailboxes - The township will replace a mailbox and post if either or both are struck by the plow or damage caused by snow or ice that is thrown from the snow plow blade.The Township will replace with a standard mailbox and post. If you have a custom mailbox or ornate post the replacement will be a standard mailbox. If you believe a properly installed mailbox or post was struck by a Township vehicle, please contact the Township.  See diagram below.
