Problems with PennDOT ?
Delaware Township receives numerous complaints each month about the maintenance (or lack thereof) of the State Roads running through the Township. Be assured that the Board of Supervisors is working hard to bring these concerns to the proper authorities. If you experience problems with plowing, potholes, or other safety concerns on State roads, you are advised to contact PennDOT and the elected officials that oversee them to express your concerns and opinions.
When contacting PennDOT or your elected officials, please keep in mind the following:
1. Be specific - PennDOT can't fill potholes they can't find.
2. Be concise - Nobody is going to read a 20 page letter.
3. Be sure its a PennDOT Road
4. Reference the SR number and not the road name.
5. Regular letters carry more weight than e-mail (But feel free to send both).
6. Avoid threats (no matter how mad you are, threats are against the law).
