I ask for your patience during the event as this will put not only Forks Twp to task but the Lehigh Valley as well knowing the crews are dedicated to getting the job done

I ask that if you have a concern that isn't a life or death matter and can wait till the end of the storm to call 610-438-9130 and leave a message. I will respond to each concern when time allows.

In closing, I ask that you stay home if you can and support our crews as they are dedicated to the residents of Forks Township and are giving 110%.

Stay Safe!

In time of snow, crews start plowing when the accumulation reaches two (2) inches. The snow plow will go through the streets twice, the first time is to clear the travel lanes and the second will be for clearing curb to curb.

Residents are encouraged to remove all vehicles from the streets to allow the plows the ability to clear curb to curb. If there is a snow / ice emergency in place, cars parked on a snow emergency route will be towed at owner's expense. Also, wait until the snow is pushed back to the curbs before clearing your driveways.
