As part of the Public Works Department, the Highway Department Staff is responsible for the maintenance of Township roads, facilities, parks and recreation fields, and recycling collection services.

 

Township Infrastructure

There is a total of 48.50 miles of roadways within North Cornwall Township, which the Highway Department maintains 39.68 miles, including thirteen bridges. Throughout the year, some of the Department's responsibilities on these roads are: Routine repairs such as potholes, sign installations, roadside mowing, bridge cleaning, culvert & drain cleaning, shoulder work, and equipment maintenance. The department also oversees subcontracted services, such as; paving, traffic line painting, and street sweeping.

 

Utilities & Street Lights

Water, Electric, Gas, Phone, and Cable Utilities are owned and maintained by those individual companies, with the exception of the sanitary sewer main line system, which is Township owned. The Township utilizes the City of Lebanon Authority, located on West Chestnut Street, as its wastewater treatment plant facility. Most of the Township's street lights are owned by Met-Ed, but there are some street lights in developments, which are owned by the Township. Any street light outage or other problems can be reported to the Township's Public Works Director. The Township will submit a work order to Met-Ed for light bulb or photocell replacement, which is Met-Ed's responsibility to repair. When calling in a street light problem, please give the nearest address to the pole location and the type of problem (light out or goes on & off). Normally repairs are made within a week. Occasionally, there may be a more severe internal problem with the street light, which may take longer to repair.
