Snow and Ice Removal 

The Public Works department is committed to providing excellent snow removal service. Although the Township has a general policy for snow removal, each storm event may be a cause for change. The Township is divided into zones. Within each zone, the major collection streets and roadways are attended to first, with the residential streets following. Salt material is spread on the roads at the start of a storm, and when snow starts to accumulate, the roads will be plowed with one single pass in each direction on each street. After the initial plowing, the plow will return to widen the cleared area as much as possible. When clearing driveway entrances keep in mind that the plow will be returning again and may block the driveway with additional snow. In our attempt to remove snow from the roads, plowed snow may damage mailboxes; wet heavy snow increases the chance of damage to mailboxes. To reduce the potential for damage, make sure your mailbox is secured tightly on a sturdy post. Damage occurring from plowed snow is the property owner's responsibly. The Township crew makes every effort to avoid causing damage to mailboxes. Some additional reminders during snow events: Do not push or throw snow in roadways. This create hazardous driving conditions. Drive carefully at a minimum speed. Keep parked vehicles off the street whenever possible.
