Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The following FAQ’s represents just a handful of the questions frequently asked by residents regarding Perry Township roads.



Q Will the Township clean out the ditch that runs behind my house?

A All off-road ditches are under the jurisdiction of the Stark County Commissioners. Perry Township maintains all roadside ditches on township-maintained roads.


Q Why is my road the last to be salted and plowed?

A We currently have 10 plowing routes throughout the township. On each of these routes, some roads are first and some last. The drivers consistently use the same routine to assure that no roads are missed. All main streets must be cleared before our plows go into the housing allotments.


Q Why does my road have a no parking snow ban on it and others do not?

A Some allotments are more difficult for the drivers to get through than others, particularly when cars are parked on the road. Those streets are posted with no-parking snow ban signs.


Q Why does the truck come into my cul-de-sac and leave without plowing the circle?

A The driver’s priority is to clear the main roads first, then go into the housing allotments and clear with one pass, then come back to do the cul-de-sacs. The main priority is to clear the mains,; so in a continuing heavy snowfall you will see the trucks pulled out of allotments to re-plow the mains.


Q Why does the truck always push the snow into my yard?

A In tight areas, such as on a cul-de-sac or narrow road, there is very little room to put snow.


Q Why does the plow always plow my driveway shut after I shovel it?

A Unfortunately, this is something that the plow driver cannot help you with. The driver does not have time to stop to open a driveway that he has plowed shut.
