The Department of Public Works provides maintenance services to Township roads and infrastructure, including storm sewers, roadway striping, and street sign installation. Other responsibilities include recycling, detention basin maintenance, roadside mowing, street sweeping, snow and ice control, and the annual collection of bulk, brush and leaves.
During a winter storm, access to properties and unimpeded traffic flow are vitally important to insure the safety of motorists. Prompt snow and ice control services on all municipally owned roads is therefore an essential task of the Department of Public Works personnel.
Public Works employees do not work alone to insure a quick and efficient control of snow and ice. Remember if it is snowing or expected to snow, please move all vehicles and portable basketball hoops, etc. from the roadway to allow snow and ice control services to work effectively.
