Zoning Hearing Board Meeting
The scheduled meeting of the Zoning Hearing Board on March 5, 2014 at 7:00 PM has been cancelled.
Because of the severity in freezing temperatures and length of this winter’s cold spells, potholes are more abundant than usual at this time of the year. Any time temperatures have risen above 45 degrees, our Borough Street Crew has been out patching potholes. They have been out for the last two days due to recent warm weather and lack of snowfall. The asphalt "cold patch" used to repair potholes does not adhere to the surrounding road surface below 45 degrees. Thanks to all our residents for their patience in getting these potholes filled, and for your many calls and notes complimenting our sleep-deprived Street Crew during this tougher-than-usual winter season.
Salt Supply Update
Salt supplies are currently low in our Borough, as they are all over the eastern half of the United States right now. We have enough salt at present to keep emergency routes salted (Hulton Road, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington Avenues), and the rest of Borough roads plowed. We have several hundred tons of salt on order, but the salt companies have reduced the size of their deliveries so that everyone can get at least some salt, it not their entire order.
We ask for your patience and understanding during this time of extended snow storms and freezing temperatures. We are all in the same boat. The three members of our Street Crew have spent multiple nights without sleep to keep our roads open and safe, and will continue to do so for as long as winter storms last. Please be careful when driving our streets and rest assured we will continue to do all that is humanly possible to keep the streets safe and clear.
New Sewage and Garbage Billing Collector
On December 9, 2013, Borough Council took action to appoint Pennsylvania Municipal Service Company (PAMS) as the collector of sewage and garbage fees for the Borough for a 3-year period beginning in 2014. The Municipal Authority of Oakmont, which previously collected sewage and garbage bills, will be notifying residents of this change with the 4th Quarter 2013 bills. Any residents with questions on this change are encouraged to contact the Borough Offices.

FIOS IN OAKMONT – Oakmont residents should be advised that the Borough does not yet have a contract with Verizon to provide FIOS in our town. We have been told repeatedly by Verizon officials that “when they’re ready” they will send us a contract to sign for this service. The Borough of Oakmont is not responsible for our residents not being able to obtain FIOS from Verizon.
