Welcome

Oley Township, settled in 1712, is located in beautiful Berks County, Pennsylvania. Oley was originally settled in 1700 and was incorporated as a Township while a part of Philadelphia County.

With lots of open space and beautiful scenery, our population of only 3,620 (2010 Census) andand consists of 24.2 square miles.

Oley Township is home to the Oley Valley Community Fair held in mid-September at the Oley Fairgrounds. In addition to games, food and fun, the fair also holds competitions for a wide variety of farm and home products.

Snow Removal

The Maintenance Staff will begin salting and cindering operations as soon as deemed necessary. Once the snow/ice accumulates to approximately three (3) inches or more, the snow-plowing operations will begin.

As Mother Nature reminded all of us last year, there isn't always a warming or melting period in between snow storms. In order to provide space for these additional snow falls, residential areas will be plowed from curb to curb and rural roads will be plowed to edge of the road. Cars that are parked on streets or cul-de-sacs prevent us from being able to do this. Whenever possible, please park vehicles in your driveway.

DO NOT push snow out onto roads at any time. This creates hazardous conditions for all vehicles.

When clearing snow from your driveway and standing at your house looking down your driveway, pile snow to the right of your driveway. PennDOT suggest clearing an area of roadway to the left of your driveway. This will give the snow a place to empty before reaching your driveway.

PennDOT has available a Winter Services Guide which provides winter driving tips as well as safety laws.
