Swancreek Township Maintenance Department is responsible for maintaining 46 miles of roads, as well as Swancreek’s five cemeteries. For a complete list of the roads maintained by Swancreek Township check the forms below. If a road is not listed, it is maintained by Fulton County.
Please call 419-822-4371 or email with any maintenance concerns.
DECEASED ANIMALS ON ROADWAYS
Please be advised that unless it is a very large animal such as a deer, Swancreek Twp. will not remove them.
A driveway permit is required for all new driveways or existing drives that are going to be paved with asphalt or concrete. There is no fee for this permit, however, the Maintenance Supervisor will access the driveway request and issue the permit upon inspection.
TILES & CATCH BASINS
Ohio Revised Code only allows the Board of Trustees to maintain the drainage for the water run-off from the township roads. Our maintenance department has been working very hard to maintain the ditches, tiles, and catch basins.
Please be aware that It is the policy of Swancreek Township that mailboxes are replaced only if it is physically hit with the snow removal vehicle, not when it is hit with the snow or damaged because of snow accumulation.
RIGHT OF WAY
All roads have a right of way that can vary from 40’ to 60’. This right of way is owned by the entity that maintains your road. Thus giving them access to run drainage and allowing utilities to run their lines.
