MAILBOX POLICY
Damage to mailboxes and/or posts from snow thrown from the snowplow is not the township’s responsibility.  Property owners have the sole responsibility for the repair or replacement of the mailbox and post in the event the snow cast from the plow is the cause of the damage.

Official Policy Statement regarding Delaware Township Road Department activities during winter or other weather-related events.
In accordance with commonwealth statutes and compliance with the Township’s promulgated emergency operations plan, Delaware Township Public Works (road department) equipment and employees are only authorized to enter any private community or development in direct support of responding emergency services- fire department, ambulance corps or state police, to an incident dispatched by Pike County Public Safety for the sole purpose of assisting in providing access to or egress from the emergency scene for emergency vehicles and personnel responding, or as requested by the emergency service officer in charge or the incident commander via established radio communication or cell phone.

All community associations, boards and members should be reminded that these are the only times and conditions under which Municipal resources are permitted to operate within private property or on Commonwealth or Federal Roads, regardless of weather or other circumstances, as part of the adopted “emergency operations plans”, compliant with Federal and State NIMS (National Incident Management System) directives. Commonwealth statutes relating to the assumption of liability for 2nd class townships and employees, prohibit any actions outside of these adopted policies. Residents who call 911 and request assistance for any valid emergency, fire, medical, etc. can be assured that a comprehensive response from all appropriate agencies will be initiated, however, even during “declared disaster emergencies” the responsibility for ongoing road maintenance, hazard or debris removal during any phase of a disaster remains with the property owner or community association.

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).
