The Madison Township Service Department consists of ten full-time employees and maintains the roads, stormwater, seasonal tree limb chipping program, tree trimming and removal, recycling program, as well as management and maintenance of the parks and cemeteries. The Service Department works diligently to assure proper drainage is well-maintained in the road right-of-way. Our storm sewers are regularly maintained to provide for safe and efficient removal of storm water. The Township maintains 51 miles of Township roads, while the Lake County Engineers Office maintains about 67 miles of Township roads, along with the State of Ohio maintaining another 14 miles of Township roads. The Service Department is responsible for the maintenance of right-of-ways for safety and beautification purposes. This includes cutting brush and removal of trees where necessary.
The department maintains its own fleet of over 25 vehicles and a large tool inventory. The department's own mechanic shop conducts its own state vehicle inspections and 90% of its own vehicle repairs. Small engine repair, carpentry, and welding work is also completed by the men in our department.
