    A True "American Home Town"

Hello and welcome to Orwigsburg!

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.


2020_10_14 Council Meeting Agenda.pdf


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.

Not all streets will be closed every day; only those that work is ongoing.

The contractor and the Borough will make all attempts to limit the portion of road closed at any given time and to facilitate access to your property during construction. However, during certain portions of the project access to driveways and/or garages may not be possible. In this case, we ask that you be patient, park in a safe location, and walk to your home.

The work is expected to progress in stages, from Ridge Road, to Marshall Drive, to Eisenhower and Halsey. The Borough realizes that this will be an inconvenience for the residents; however, the finished storm-water project will help to remove the high water in the area, in all but the most severe storms.

Thank you In advance. 09/11/2020

"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.

Rick Bubeck; Borough Council President"                                                               March 2020

"The United States flags at the Orwigsburg Veterans Memorial Hall and on Centre Square have been replaced through the generosity of the Captain Jason B. Jones Foundation. The Orwigsburg Borough gratefully acknowledges the presentation and strongly encourages community residents' support of the foundation's mission."
