It is the policy of Orrock Township that the standard construction for supporting mailboxes is the swing-away mailbox support. If your mailbox is put in according to township standards and damaged during township maintenance activities, it may be repaired/replaced as needed by contacting the township.
SwingSafe Mailbox supports are available for purchase from the township. The price is $107 and does not include the mailbox.
Operations will normally begin when an accumulation of two inches or more AND snow has stopped falling. Under certain circumstances, the Town Road Authority may dispatch equipment when these criteria are not met.
Orrock Township is responsible for approximately forty-five (47) miles of roadways. Residents shall NOT attempt to stop equipment operators, approach snow removal equipment or impede snow removal in any manner. Stopping plows to discuss your concerns is counter-productive to getting the 47 miles of Town roads cleared, a safety hazard to you, the plow operator and the traveling public.
Concerns about the manner in which the road is being plowed, delivery of ice control products or other comments are to be directed to the Town’s Road Authority.
Orrock Township is responsible for tree trimming along public townships roads as necessary to maintain safe road conditions to the traveling public. Orrock Township has contracted to trim trees and brush the area within the road right of way (R/W) of the areas in the map above.

Letters have been mailed to all properties within the tree trimming / removal areas.

What is Adopt a Storm Drain?
Everything that enters our storm drains gets transported to our waterways! This includes pollutants such as garbage, grass clippings, leaves, salt and oil. These types of pollutants can harm fish and wildlife populations, kill native vegetation, foul drinking water supplies, and make recreational areas unsafe and unpleasant. The program asks volunteers to clear their adopted storm drains and the surrounding area on a regular basis. Report what you collected and the amount so we can monitor the overall effects the program is having. Adopt A Storm Drain Today!
