The White Township Road Department provides many services for the residents of the Township. Snow-plowing and anti-skid treatment during winter weather, street and bridge maintenance, stormwater, mowing road rights-of-way, new construction projects and an annual leaf and spring pickup are only a few of the many tasks undertaken by the road department. The crew consists of nine full-time employees including the road superintendent and assistant road superintendent.
The White Township road crew is responsible for clearing snow from more than 84 miles of roads. White Township has a salt storage shed with a 500-ton capacity of salt and 250-ton capacity of anti-skid. Magnesium chloride is sometimes used when temperatures drop below 20 degrees. The crew utilizes 4 large trucks, 5 midsize trucks and 2 pickup trucks. A grader and front loader are sometimes used to remove hard-packed or heavy ice.
