There are over fifty miles of Township roads in Painesville Township, all paved or hard-surfaced. There are eight full time service workers and one Service Director. A major goal of the Service Department is to keep the ongoing program of maintenance of road surfaces in place, involving much more than just taking care of the roads:

Snow and ice control

Storm sewer repairs

Patch and maintain road surfaces

Mowing of road berms

Annual leaf collection

Annual Christmas tree collection

Annual Brush collection

Roadside ditching

Clean and maintain basins

Installation and repair of street signs

Maintenance of Nye Road Cemetery

Service and maintain vehicles and equipment

Assist Fire Department in emergency situations

Snow Removal: We are responsible for clearing 206 roads in Painesville Township. Ninety-nine percent of these roads serve residential areas. On many streets, the lack of curbs to clearly define the roadway makes it very challenging for plow operators.

When the snow reaches two inches or more, no parking is allowed on Township roads. Please do not plow or push snow in the road or onto neighboring properties.

To request repairs to yards or mailboxes due to snowplowing, please call (440) 352-2661.
