  As Central Ohio prepares for its first winter storm of the season, we want to remind Violet Township residents of our snow and ice removal philosophy. First and foremost, safety for the traveling public is critical as we execute our snow and ice removal program. Therefore, consistent with previous years, we will adhere to the following procedures:

Primary Streets
Main roads will be treated first. Examples of main roads are those that connect County and State routes, streets leading to schools and businesses. and main road(s) within subdivisions that provide primary access to the subdivision.

Secondary Streets
Side streets, cul de sacs and dead end streets will be treated next. Depending on the snowfall rate, significant snow could collect on side streets while main roads are being cleared.


Mailboxes and their supports should be reinforced to withstand the impact of snow during snow and ice removal activities. Mailboxes knocked down due to the weight of snow will not be replaced. However, as time allows and as a service to our residents, township staff will attempt to temporarily reestablish mailboxes and/or their supports. This will only occur after the storm event has subsided and all streets are cleared. Note that on occasion, this can take up to a few days.

The Service & Engineering Department is responsible for maintaining Township roadways and parks. 

It is the Service Department's primary job to keep the roads in good condition no matter what the season.  When the threat of snow has passed they repair roads, re-establish ditches for proper stormwater runoff, keep storm drains clean and open, remove problem trees in right-of-ways, and assist the Township with numerous other jobs that would otherwise have to be contracted elsewhere.  

Who Maintains or Plows Your Road?
