I was elected as Sterling Township Highway Commissioner in April of 2013 and began my term in May of 2013. As the Highway Commissioner, I am responsible for 48 miles of unincorporated roadways; the roads which are outside of the city limits and are not county roads. The Sterling Township Road District , a department of the Town of Sterling, maintains the rural roadways separate from and not to be confused with the City of Sterling. This area stretches South of Fulfs Road and North to Lynn Boulevard and it is East of Ridge Road, and West of Palmyra Road or Lee County Line. Some of the roads and subdivisions include Stillton Subdivision, McCue Road, Science Ridge Road, Hickory Hills Subdivisions, Hoover Road, and Eberly, Colonial, and Snavely Subdivisions. Also included are Fulfs, Holly and Polo roads, Country Club Lane, River, Stouffer, and Reno roads and all Subdivisions in the Woodlawn area. We will develop a long term, strategic plan to resurface our Township roads and ensure they are maintained and are ready to meet the future and growing demands set by our residents. We will continue to provide the best possible road surfaces at the most economical expense to our constituency ensuring that the “unincorporated” road system and bridges safely meet the challenges ahead. I have been involved in road construction for 36 years. Some of the duties of the Highway Commissioner include but are not limited to constructing and maintaining roads and bridges; snow and ice removal, removing debris, downed trees, and dead animals from the roadway; storage of district tools and equipment; and installation and maintenance of traffic signs. The Highway Department also maintains storm and sanitary sewers, water mains, and box culverts. Additional duties include ditch grading, concrete patching and paving, blacktop patching and paving, and also curb and gutter. The Road District mows the right-of-ways to prevent the spread of noxious weeds and improve the appearance of the roadside. It is a privilege and honor to serve as your Highway Commissioner. The Sterling Township Highway Department has 48 miles of specified unincorporated roadways. My staff and I have one common goal, “To keep the roads safe for all people traveling on them." We are still learning how to best serve you and appreciate the feedback we received over the past year. Every call that has been made to the Sterling Township Highway Department has been addressed, whether compliment or complaint. It is imperative that we maintain open communication, so please continue to reach out to us. We are united in serving you to the best of our ability. In 2015, we look forward to another year of doing our best to keep the roads well maintained, free of debris, clear of snow, and ultimately in the safest condition possible. To better serve you, the Highway staff removes yard debris, downed trees, and most green yard waste on a scheduled basis during the spring, summer and fall. The Highway Department also maintains storm and sanitary sewers, water mains, and box culverts. We mow and maintain right-of-ways and ditches. Although our primary goal is to maintain the roads, we have the heart to serve you. If we can help, we will. As Highway Commissioner, it is my responsibility to have an economical approach for a long term road maintenance program. We have successfully completed the first phase of road surfacing. As spring approaches, you will see more road surfacing on your Sterling Township roads. This is progress and I embrace the challenges that lie ahead with confidence . We have qualified highway staff who will accomplish the tasks at hand. Again, it is an absolute pleasure to serve you as the Highway Commissioner. Feel free to call 815-625-2785 Monday - Friday 7am - 3 pm with any comments or concerns.
