Crestlane Drive Closing

NOTICE: Please be advised that Crestlane Drive will be closed on October 15th for approximately 10 calendar days to allow for the replacement of the culvert at the Martins Run ditch. The project is being constructed by Carron Asphalt of Glenwillow Ohio at a cost of $49,200 which is being funded with a grant from the Lorain County Storm Water District.

UPDATE: Crestlane Culvert project is delayed due to a conflict with a gas main. The gas company will relocate the gas line this week (hopefully).

Brush Collection

Brush collection: January through September

Brush collection starts the last Monday of each month, except for October, November, and December due to leaf collection, but will resume in January. Please call (440) 324-3517 before 8:00 AM prior to the last Monday, if you don’t call we may not pick it up. Leave your name, address and phone number and please talk slowly so we can schedule our route for that day. Calls received after 8:00 AM on the Monday of the collection will be added to the list for the following month.

Do not bag your brush. Place the cut ends of your branches toward the road. If you have a large quantity help us out and spread it out across your yard. When the piles get high it is hard to pull the branches out. Our chipper does not like prickers, flowers, weeds, corn stocks, any type of grapevine material, or firewood size logs. They plug up our filters and intake screens and get caught up in the feed reels. If you pay a contractor to trim or cut down your tree they are responsible for what they do; the Road Department will not pick it up. This was a motion passed by the Board of Trustees.

Wood chips are free to township residents and they can be dropped off in your driveway when the Road Department is out chipping. Request wood chips by leaving a message at 324-3517.
