Public Works

The Public Works-Highway Department is responsible for maintaining 66 miles of Township roads.  Services are provided by the three full-time employees with the help of two seasonal employees.  Besides road maintenance, responsibilities include bridge repair, stormwater system maintenance, snow removal, shoulder mowing, and tree trimming.  These employees are also responsible for maintaining the township equipment and the grounds and buildings in the municipal park.

On-street parking is prohibited during storms.  State Police will be called to tag cars if they are a hazard to traffic or to snowplow equipment.  The Road Crew appreciates any help provided by residents during inclement weather situations.  Remember that when a road is flooded, please turn around.

Please call and let us know when there is a road problem.

The office number is 717-432-9082.  After hours contact 9-1-1 for help with emergencies such as trees down or flooded roadways.
