The Vermilion Township Road Department consists of two full-time employees who are responsible for maintaining 21.43 miles of Vermilion Township roads and to ensure roads remain in good condition, with the exception of all state routes/highways and county roads. The Road Department has the equipment needed to handle the worst northern Ohio winters and prides itself on being able to maintain safe road conditions through the winter season.

The Road Department asks for help from residents in keeping open ditches and driveway tiles clear of debris to allow for proper drainage during rain events.  Do not place leaves, sticks or any other debris into the ditch.  Please do not install “damming” devices in the ditch.  These make it extremely difficult to keep the ditch maintained and flowing.

Ditch mowing is generally conducted before Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day.  The Road Department may add to this schedule at their discretion.

During the winter the Road Department asks to please use extra caution around the trucks.  It can be extremely difficult for the operators to see oncoming vehicles during snow events. 

If you are interested in enclosing an open ditch please contact the Road Department at 440-967-8658 for instructions.

PLEASE NOTE: Anyone wishing to drain anything into a ditch or enclose ditch by installing a pipe or tie into an existing drain tile MUST obtain permission from the Road Department or Township Trustees. Any driveway installation where a tile is required must obtain a permit.  Any structure erected within the road right of way will require permission as well.
