A Great Place to Live, Work and Play
The Borough of Orwigsburg is small town America. One of our major strengths as a community is our small-town charm in a fast-paced environment. With only 3106 residents, many families have known each other for generations. The local economy is strong, and local crime is low. Infrastructure is maintained and operational with a proximity of a roads network to PA Route 61, Interstate 78 and Interstate 81.
Orwigsburg is a great Pennsylvania community. It has a strong and dedicated work force, the residents are caring and supportive of each other, and it seems that even Father Time moves at a more relaxed pace.
Borough Council has awarded a contract for the replacement of storm-water facilities in the Ridge Road area. This announcement is to inform residents that your home may be adjacent to the project area and that access may be affected.
Starting February 2020 all Council meetings will start at 7:00 PM. Meetings are currently being held via zoom. Please visit this site for all updates.

"It's the duty and responsibility of council, our police department, fire department and Borough employees to support and keep our citizens safe during this global crisis and unprecedented time. Everyone has heard numerous times in the past few weeks on how to stay healthy and safe.
PLEASE--stay in and respect what the health professionals are suggesting which is social distancing, washing your hands frequently and limiting your outside travel on to essential businesses.
Remember, stay centered, stay positive, stay calm and stay indoors.
