Among many diverse duties, the major responsibility of the Department of Public Works is the maintenance of all Township roads and parks. The Department also conducts the annual leaf collection program during the autumn months, which is one of the Department’s major activities, collecting 1500 cubic yards of leaves over a span of 2 months. During the winter months, they plow all municipal roads using about 750 tons of rock salt and 1500 tons snow grits, plus 3500 gallons of calcium chloride for snow and ice control activities.
Routine road patching consumes about 1200 tons of asphalt in a typical year.
The Department also performs most of the maintenance required on all municipal vehicles.
