As in any township in the State of Ohio there are many roads. Most townships have Interstate, State, County and Township roads. The responsibility of maintaining the Township roads falls on the Township Trustees and Roads Department. The many aspects of road maintenance include paving, patching, berming, plowing snow in the winter, maintaining drainage, mowing and assisting residents with problems. All this requires a dedicated crew of individuals. Berlin Township is fortunate to have such personnel.
Snow, Snow Plows and Mailboxes, Oh My… by Trustee D’Amico Fall 2019
Another beautiful summer is now in the history books. Summer work projects are winding down and being completed with a new outlook into upcoming winter snow maintenance and removal. We ask that extra careful attention be given to all township snow removal equipment while they are trying to complete their tasks. These large trucks at night have a hard time seeing when working and backing so please allow them space. Secondly, snow blowing and shoveling snow into the street is not permitted according the Ohio Revised Code. Obstacles that are in the street could cause someone in the traveling public to wreck or damage their vehicle. Thirdly, all mailboxes need to conform to United States Postal Service code as to the location from the edge of the street. Berlin Township will not pay for damage to any mailbox that does not meet USPS Guidelines. These boxes need to be 6 to 8 inches from the front of the box off of the street.
We strive to give each and every resident of Berlin Township the best services that we can because the safety of all of our residents that travel our roads is our top priority. Lastly, please remove vehicles from streets when there is snow. It is very difficult to maneuver and be timely with snow plowing if we can’t get around your subdivision easily.
