The Highway Commissioner, in response to numerous concerns regarding flooding in the unincorporated curb and gutter areas of the Township, has started a fall sweeping program. Beginning in September or as the leaves begin to fall and create drainage problems, the Highway Department will sweep the streets in the curb and gutter areas of the Township.
This program is intended to help eliminate flooding in flood prone areas of the Township.
This also keeps the leaves from deteriorating and freezing in the curbs, destroying pavement and curbs and gives us all a cleaner community.
In the spring, the Township will be sending the sweeper out into the curb and gutter areas of the Township to clean up any debris which has accumulated along the curb lines during the winter months from the de-icing program.
