Township Right of Way – Removal of Structures

As the Township Public Works Department prepares for winter road maintenance, please remove all basketball hoops and other obstructions or structures within 10 feet of the edge of the paved portion of the public street or highway in the Township.
Chapter 225-107 of the Township Zoning Code states that it is illegal to place any structure within 10 feet of the edge of the paved portion of any public street or highway in the Township.
If these obstructions or structures are not removed from the public right-of-way, the Township will not be responsible for any damage sustained to the structure as a result of snow removal in that area.


Please be sure that your mailbox post is sturdy enough to handle snow and ice from the snow plow.  The Township is not responsible for any damages to mailboxes and posts from snow and ice.

Snow Removal on Roads

Please assist the Public Works Department during the winter months and snow removal by following the suggestions below:

  • Whenever possible, please park in your driveway and not on the street during a winter storm.  This will help the drivers on their snow routes.
  • Do not blow or shovel snow on the street.  This is a violation of Township Code Chapter 192, Article II, and carries a fine of $600.00.
  • Monitor winter storm tracking through the media, plan accordingly and try to avoid unnecessary travel during these storms.
  • Unless you have an emergency, please do not call the Township office to report that your street has not been cleared.  Rest assured, if it's snowing, we working.
In addition to Township streets, our crews are responsible for all county and state roads with the exception of Route 8.  Streets are prioritized according to high traffic, public transportation and school bus routes first.
