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 Blish Cemetery
- Service and maintain vehicles and equipment
- Assist Fire Department in emergency situations
Snow Removal: We are responsible for clearing 215 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.
