Senior Citizen Snow Removal
Many senior citizens can no longer shovel snow. If you would be interested in shoveling snow for a senior citizen, please call the township office at 724-285-1168 to submit your contact information. Thank you for your willingness to help with this need.
Here are a couple of quick reminders for winter maintenance.
To prevent a hazard, do not push snow back onto the road.
It is unlawful to park on township roads during the months of October through March. Cars must be eight feet from the road in order for the road department to remove snow to the edge of the pavement. Violators may be cited.
The township is not responsible for damage to mailboxes that are in the township's right-of-way. Mailbox post must be behind the ditch line and the minimum of two fee off the road. To avoid problems, please place the mailbox as far off the road as possible yet still permitting access for the mail carrier.
