Services for Cities & Townships
Check out some of the options below to see if we can be of service to your community. If you have any questions about whether or not we can provide a service, give us a call at 330-643-2860.
The County Engineer acts as the Engineer for each of Summit County's townships. The Engineer's office has assigned each township a dedicated County Engineer's office employee, who attends township meetings and is available to answer any questions the township may have. This is a valuable way to keep the lines of communication open and ensure the Engineer's office is aware of infrastructure issues in each township. Townships needing engineering services can fill out the request online here. Please review the Township Services Policy before making the request. In addition to the engineering services, townships, villages, and cities in the Surface Water Management District may submit Drainage Concern Forms online at the link below.
The Summit County Engineer's office and the Summit County Executive's office have developed a local grant program intended to help communities pay for road projects that directly promote economic development in the region. Find out more here.
The County is also responsible for disbursing cities' and villages' permissive license fee allocation. The Permissive License Fee Allocation Form is online and can be found at the bottom of this page.
Regional Pavement Maintenance Program
The Summit County Engineer’s office bid process was opened up to all communities in Summit County in 2011. The idea behind the collaboration is that the larger purchasing power created by bidding for pavement maintenance items as one unit will lead to a smaller per unit costs for all participants, while the municipalities still maintain local control over the projects. The Summit County Engineer’s office administers the County-wide program. This saves communities' money and a considerable amount of staff time. The regional road programs include bidding a contract for each service: hot mix resurfacing, 405 motor paving, 422 chip and seal, asphalt rejuvenation, crack sealing, guardrail replacement, culvert replacement, concrete road repair, and catch basin repair. To find out more about the program, contact the Construction Section Manager at 330-643-8559.
NPDES Permit Holder and Coordinator
The Summit County Engineer's office is the administrator and coordinator for all townships, one city, and one village for the National Pollutant Discharge Detection and Elimination System permit. Each community is required by the Ohio EPA to hold a permit governing illicit discharge and stormwater management practices. The County holds the permit and each community involved is a "co-permittee". The Ohio EPA asked for several changes in order to fulfill the NPDES permit and as a result the expanded Surface Water Management District was created. For more information see the link below. For any questions about the NPDES permit or the MS4 Countywide Storm Water Management Plan, call 330-643-8733.
