Since the township is responsible for snow removal on residential streets, the services department is prepared throughout the winter months for any snow conditions. During a typical winter season, the department uses 1,500 tons of salt.
For snow removal, the township is divided into four areas: Northridge, Upper Shiloh, Lower Shiloh and Fort McKinley. Each area is assigned a crew and a truck. Supplementing these resources is a fleet of four 4-wheel-drive pick-up trucks equipped with snowplows.
Before Shoveling Your Driveway
Please wait until township crews have cleared your street before you begin, or you may have to shovel the driveway apron a second time. When you do shovel, pile the snow to the right side as you approach the street. This may reduce the amount of snow that gets pushed onto your driveway apron when our trucks come through and try to get the snow adequately off the street and clear of drainage facilities.
