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.
The Trustees have implemented a change regarding driveway permits. Moving forward, all driveway permits for new constructions or alterations to existing driveways will now be processed through the county.
Here’s what you need to know:
-The County will issue the driveway permit.
-The County form, available at County Permit Form, replaces our previous Township form.
-The Township will no longer handle driveway permits directly.
Please be aware: Ensure the use of the County form, as our Township form is now obsolete. Submit the completed County form to the County for approval. The County will forward the approved permit to us.
Your cooperation is appreciated as we streamline this process. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. Thank you for your understanding.
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.
