All off-road ditches are under the jurisdiction of the Stark County Commissioners. Perry Township maintains all roadside ditches on township-maintained roads.
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.
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.
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.
In tight areas, such as on a cul-de-sac or narrow road, there is very little room to put snow.
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.
