Nuisance Ordinance No. 2013-04 was adopted in an effort to keep the Township clean and our residents safe. Depositing debris, which includes grass clippings and snow, onto public roads is considered a nuisance and is illegal and prohibited. Grass clippings and/or snow put onto the road creates dangerous driving conditions for motorists.
Another important reminder is that it is the homeowner's responsibility to keep water off the roadways, and to maintain your driveway pipe by removing leaves and debris.Proposed 2021 Road Projects
Projects planned for 2021 include Base repair and widening of northern end of Moritz Road, paving of Mt. Hope Road from Carrolls Tract Road to the railroad tracks in Virginia Mills; replace a culvert and paving on Old Waynesboro Road near Specialty Granules entrance; paving a section on Cold Springs Road in the area of Deer Track and Whippoorwill; and seal coating on lower Bullfrog Road.
We continue to update our fleet of trucks and equipment in a scheduled "turn-over" plan to minimize excessive maintenance and breakdowns. No equipment purchases are to be made until 2023, when 2018 Mack Truck will be paid in full, and we replace the 2006 Peterbilt Truck.
Roadmaster Herr and the Board of Supervisors continue to monitor roads for maintenance and improvements. The road crew does plan on clearing vegetation and tree overhang, as well as mowing and inspections of roads and bridges on a regular basis. For detailed information on these projects or if you have concern about the Township roads, please contact the Road Department at 717-642-8531 or at email@example.com
As always the Road Department does it's best to remove snow from the roadways as quick and efficient as possible. Please
give the Road Crew room to do their job by leaving room between your vehicle and the snow plow trucks. Slow down and be alert to the road conditions and your surroundings. One important section of the Nuisance Ordinance (2013-04) refers to depositing debris (i.e. snow and grass clippings) on the roadway, we ask for your assistance by refraining from shoveling or blowing snow onto the roadways as it creates a hazard for motorists. Furthermore, snow pushed out onto the road will be pushed back onto your driveway when the snow plow passes your home. For more PennDOT Winter Resources please click on this link.
