Maintenance

The Maintenance Division is the largest in the Engineer's Office. They plow and apply salt to the roadway when it snows and fix potholes and cut brush in the right of way in the warm weather months. Maintenance consists of three geographical divisions serviced by Maintenance Facilities; Eastern-located in Newtown; Central-located in the Burlington area, and Western-located just outside of Miamitown. The Engineer also operates two substations, one in Delhi Township and the other in the City of Harrison. The Hamilton County Engineer's Service Garage and the Traffic Department, in the Hartwell area, are also part of the Maintenance Division.

If you have a question concerning the maintenance of the pavement or berm area of a County Road, please consult the Road List   for the Maintenance Facility assigned to take care of that road.

Annual Inspection

The Hamilton County Engineer’s Office is responsible for clearing county roads of snow and ice.  County Engineer Ted Hubbard’s crews stretch budget dollars by concentrating on the maintenance of existing snow removal equipment.  Well-maintained vehicles last longer, and money not spent replacing worn out and rusting trucks can be spent on manpower and salt.

Each year one day is set aside for inspection of county snow-removal vehicles, which includes plows and front-end loaders.  The trucks are lined up and Mr. Hubbard and other supervisory staff make the rounds to the three county maintenance division facilities.  There they check out each truck and talk with the drivers.  At this time the upcoming winter route assignments are also distributed and drivers are checked for current commercial driver licenses (CDLs).  In looking at the line of county trucks it is obvious that they are cared for and well maintained.  Since the trucks are all to be inspected in this way, it becomes a source of pride for the drivers.  Each driver wants to look good next to his peers by presenting a clean and well maintained vehicle.
