New Snow Plows Arrive!

new trucks

      The Board of Trustees voted in September 2013 to purchase two new snow plows, replacing two of our current plows that are now 13 and 15 years old. The township operates three plows to clear our 26 miles of township roads.

      The new plows are Ford F450 4x4 chassis, dump beds, with 10 cylinder gas engines. They are equipped with 9', 4 cubic yard hydraulic stainless steel hopper spreaders, and 9' heavy duty contractor grade, Western Snow Plows. They have four corner and both sides LED strobe warning light systems. The trucks were purchased off State Term Schedule from Valley Ford Truck in Cleveland Ohio. The purchase price of each truck fully equipped was $63,496. The Township saved approximately $17,000 per truck by purchasing through the State Term Schedule system.

      The township received the trucks Thursday, 1/23/2014. The trucks did not sit long as the winter snow storms continue to blanket our area. They were put into service Saturday morning and performed flawlessly. This winter has already required township road treatments more times in a single year then any of the township employees remember. The Township has spread approximately 50 ton of grit and 30 ton of salt already this season. The township responds to roads as quickly as possible during each storm so be patient ... we will be on your road soon!
