The Service Department oversees the streets, parks, pool, and cemetery
divisions of the City of Orrville. The Street Department itself is responsible for over 75
miles of roadway, storm sewer lines, street tree planting and removal, traffic lights,
maintenance of all City vehicles and equipment, animal control, ditches or waterways, and
signage. Our responsibilities are varied, and include snow and ice
removal, Fall leaf pickup,
Christmas tree pickup, mosquito control, paving and resurfacing of streets, and
maintaining City-owned buildings.
The City of Orrville has a leaf pick up service for residents. Please place leaves on curb lawn or behind the sidewalk if you have no
curb lawn. We ask that you do not place the leaves in the street as they get into
the storm sewer system, plug the basin and storm lines, and could cause
backup into your home and neighboring homes if there is a hard rain.

(Ord. 47-90. Passed 7-2-90.)
During any storm, don't forget . . .
- Weather conditions such as wind, pavement temperatures, and duration of
storm will affect snow and ice removal.
- Vehicles parked or abandoned on snow emergency routes during a snow
emergency will be towed. Look for "Snow Ban Street" signs. Listen to radio
reports for local snow emergency declarations.
- Homeowners and businesses are responsible for clearing sidewalks.
- It is helpful if during a snow emergency you park in your driveway and
not in the street (especially not in a cul-de-sac).
- If you shovel your driveway apron before the plow comes through, always
shovel to the right (facing the street).
- Stay at least two car lengths behind a snow plow for every 10 mph you are
- Beware of "black ice", roads that look wet but are actually
glazed with ice. Ramps and bridges freeze first.
- For medical emergencies where roads have not been plowed, call 911.
Pursuant to Attorney General Opinion 86-023, the Sheriff of a county may declare
a snow emergency and temporarily close county and township roads within his jurisdiction
for the preservation of the public peace.
Keeping this in mind, there has been some confusion as to what a snow emergency
actually means. It is for this purpose that the Wayne County Sheriff's Department
has defined the following warning levels:
LEVEL 1. Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting
snow. Roads are also icy. Drive very cautiously.
LEVEL 2. Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting
snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the
roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.
LEVEL 3. All roadways are closed to non-emergency
personnel. No one should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely
necessary to travel. All employees should contact their employer to see if they
should report to work. Those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to

sidewalks by 8 a.m. Thru alleys will be plowed as time permits. Hauling piled
snow from the downtown area will be done as time permits.
Generally, the City will not replace any mailbox which falls over or
falls off during snow plowing unless there is physical damage from the plow. Sometimes the
mailboxes can be damaged by the snow coming off of the plow. This is unavoidable and
mailboxes damaged in this manner will not be replaced. In circumstances where there is
physical damage by the plow or truck, the mailbox will not be replaced if the mailbox
extended over the edge of the curb and into the street.
