The dedicated township right-of-way on a curbed street ends at the sidewalk. The sidewalk maintenance is the responsibility of the home owner.

The assumed right-of-way on rural roads goes back to the telephone poles or utilities.

The township does not perform any service or maintenance on private properties unless we have an easement.

Township Recommended Trees to be planted in township right-of ways; and

Lucas County Recommended Trees.

Mailboxes

Mailboxes must be placed according to Monclova Township standards. Mailbox Regulations Specifications & Drawings.

Winter Policies

It seems like it’s a bit too early to be discussing winter issues, but we all know winter is just around the corner.

*Major connector roads will be attended to first, followed by residential streets.

*One single pass in each direction. After an initial pass, the plow will return to widen the cleared area to the curbed area.

*Snow accumulated on the side discharge blade has no place to go but to the adjacent street and driveways. This in unavoidable. There is no technology that will allow the plow operator to stop snow coming off the edge of the plow as it passes a driveway.

*Cul de sac plowing will place snow along the outside of the circle. It is impossible to push the snow to the center of the cul de sac. If the plow bade is turned to the left in an attempt to do so, the potential for the truck to slide sideways increases exponentially, creating a hazardous situation that is not acceptable.

*Residents and property owners are responsible for clearing snow from sidewalk and driveways. Snow should be shoveled into the yard NOT into the street. Yu could be charged with a violation of Section 5589.01 of the Ohio Revised Code if you deposit snow in the street. To avoid double shoveling, wait until after your street has been plowed to the curb before you clear your driveway.

*It is the property owner’s responsibility to maintain mailboxes, posts, and supports in the proper condition and location. As a courtesy, a mailbox that goes down as a result of snow removal operations on a township road shall be temporarily repaired as quickly as possible to minimize disruption in mail delivery. If a properly installed mailbox (see above) is struck by our equipment, it is restored to original condition when scheduling and weather permit. Improperly installed mailboxes or mailboxes knocked down due to the weight of the snow receive no further repair or adjustment.

Bike Trails

The two forks of the Wabash Cannonball Bike Trails are under the jurisdiction of Lucas County and maintained/patrolled by Metro Parks of the Toledo Area. The maintenance of the trails is not the jurisdiction of Monclova Township Maintenance Department. Contact the Metro Parks for maintenance concerns at 419-407-9700. Call 9-1-1 in any emergency situation.

Yard Waste Disposal

The Township offers free yard disposal for its residents at Ohio Compost, 10839 Sager Road (Alternate 20)! For information on how to deliver  your items to Ohio Compost, or for hours of operation, go to www.ohiocompost.com or call 419-897-7807.  You may also dispose of bagged yard waste (no loose garbage in your toter, please) with the regular garbage collection as part of your 1 toter limit.  Should you choose this method, be mindful that your toter is not overly weighted to prevent lifting or toter repositioning by one individual. Autumn leaf collection service is provided by the township; click here.

Landfill Disposal Options

Disposing of larger quantities of refuse may require you to make special arrangements for a dumpster or make plans to visit a landfill.  There are no local landfills.  Our neighbors in Wood County accepts out of county debris.  Visit their website for more information.
