Police Chief Resignation: On June 10, 2024, the Ross Township Board of Trustees received the resignation of Police Chief Burton Roberts.  His decision comes after much reflection and personal consideration.  His letter states that it has been his honor to have served Ross Township since September 2019.  His intentions are to relocate to Arizona after a stellar career of 32 years in law enforcement.  It is with regret for our township and best wishes for Chief Roberts that the Board of Trustees has accepted his letter of resignation to be effective July 5, 2024.  As with the recent appointment of our Fire Chief, the Ross Township Board of Trustees will begin an exhaustive search for our next Police Chief.  We will ensure that he or she will fulfill all of the needs that our fine township deserves.  We are proud of our department and each of the officers that have chosen to establish their careers here and we will work tirelessly to hire a Police Chief that meets all of the qualifications necessary to continue to lead the Police Department in the direction that Chief Roberts has for the past almost 5 years.  We are thankful for the fine staff of officers that Chief Roberts has assembled during his tenure as the department prepares for the next chapter to provide for the safety of all Ross residents.

Township Streets Snow & Ice Removal Information

​​During any snow or ice storm, the Road Department requests that all vehicles refrain from parking on the roadway. In this way we can most effectively perform our task for you.

​This is especially the case during a Township defined snow emergency which is generally when 2+ inches of snow have accumulated on the pavement. When a snow emergency exists please remove your vehicle from the street. This aids us in our snowplowing efforts in several ways. It helps us do a better job and prevents your vehicle from being “plowed in” by the snow that rolls off the edge of the plow as it goes down your street.

​Generally, snowfalls of less than two inches are removed by melting with de-icing salt. It takes approximately three hours to successfully treat all Township maintained streets one time with de-icing salt. Snowfalls of more than two inches have to be plowed and salted to remove the snow. This process can take up to five hours on depending on the conditions and usually a minimum of two separate passes are needed. Please be patient with this process as we get to all Township streets.
