Salt and brine are stockpiled to ensure the Maintenance Department is able to care for the Township’s roadways. Roads are pretreated with a brine solution up to 48 hours before a snow event followed by the application of salt. After a snowfall of two inches or more plowing begins on main streets or roadways with dangerous curves and hills. Secondary roads are then completed, followed by cul-de-sacs and finally, recreational trails.
Reminders during snow events:
Remove all vehicles parked along the street.
When shoveling, pile snow by the curb to the left side of the driveway (when viewing the home from the street). Doing so will keep the snow from being pushed back across the driveway as the plows pass.
In the event a mailbox is damaged by a snow plow and is unable to be repaired by the Township, homeowners are eligible for reimbursement up to $75.00.
- Keep street trees trimmed to prevent damage by passing plows.
