John S. Dusza, as Highway Commissioner of Winfield Township Road District, maintains the right-of-way of many of the streets in all unincorporated areas. The Road District does not maintain State, County Municipal or private roads. With few exceptions, that right-of-way is 66 feet wide or 33 feet from the center of the street to the property line. Within that 66 feet the Road District assumes many responsibilities.
The Township also offers these additional services:
Your Road District is equipped to handle most of these duties and to contract some with private enterprise. We have excellent intergovernmental cooperation with the municipalities in and around township boundaries. Manpower and equipment are often exchanged to make all of us more efficient.
PERMITS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL WORK WITHIN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY AND FOR SOME PROJECTS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY.
The following pages will explain how these various programs work, what the Road District is trying to accomplish and how you, the taxpayer, can assist us and benefit from our services.
