Winter Road Care: Snow and Ice Removal
The Township's Public Works Department is prepared for the winter season. Early in the fall, materials were ordered, equipment was tested and calibrated; driver's routes were reviewed, and workers were trained in proper winter maintenance techniques.
Our goal is to ensure that Township roadways are safe for residents, visitors, and business owners.
