Highway

The Highway Department maintains the residential street and public right of way in unincorporated Orland Township. This includes repair and construction of streets, storm sewers, sidewalks, curbs and street signs. We are also responsible for snow removal, street sweeping, street lighting, mowing right of way and culvert replacement.

Improving the safety and overall appearance of our community is a cooperative effort between residents and government. Very positive changes occur when we work together. Please help make Orland Township a community to be proud of by reporting illegal dumping, street light outages, potholes, broken or missing street signs to the Highway Department Maintenance Facility.

Orland Township's unincorporated infrastructure is monitored, maintained, repaired, cleared and upgraded on a daily basis. All this is done on average for less than $20 per household per year. As your Highway Commissioner it has been my goal to work with the community and be an efficient and responsible agency.

Storm Water

Understanding Storm Water

Picture the grime of city streets -- oil, grease and soot from cars and trucks, pet waste, trash and litter, sediment and debris from construction sites, and a mix of toxic chemicals. Now picture the same streets after a rainstorm. They look cleaner, right? Sure, but the debris and contaminants haven’t just disappeared -- they’ve been swept through street drains and underground pipes then washed directly into nearby rivers, lakes and streams.
