The Washington Township Public Works Department has various duties and responsibilities. Regardless of weather conditions, every effort is made to accomplish our list of tasks. Residents’ cooperation is essential to the effectiveness of the department. Some of our work is part of a master plan for the year dealing with capital improvements. The remainder of our activities are dictated by conditions within the Township, and the requests and concerns that are generated by the township residents.
The Public Works Department manages all the aspects of public works and public works construction within the Township, under the direction of the Township Committee. The eight person Public Works Crew patch potholes, pave, chip seal, street sweep and perform general road maintenance; erect street signs, regulatory signs and other Township identifications; maintain storm sewers; cut back branches and remove fallen trees and limbs from the roads; spread anti skid materials and snow removal; mow Township property, pickup vegetative materials for Township residents at curbside; maintain Township buildings, parks, property, vehicles and equipment; assist and support other Township departments, groups, and Agencies.
The Public Works Department is responsible for the maintenance of 34 miles of Township “owned” roads. County and state “owned” roads are maintained totally by those entities. You may call the Township Public Works Department to ascertain the responsible governmental unit for specific roads.
