To Our Residents:

To increase our effectiveness in snow removal, the Township has implemented a new ordiance, Ordiance No. 16-1101.

Removing snow efficiently from the Township’s streets is a huge task. To increase our effectiveness in this task the Township has implemented a new ordinance, Ordinance No. 16-1101, that is intended to both maximize our efforts and enhance the efficiency of our Snow Removal Team. Whenever there is a snowfall which causes an accumulation of snow to a depth of two (2”) inches or more, and until such time as snow removal operations are completed, it shall be unlawful for any person to park a vehicle or permit a vehicle owned by that person to be parked on the following township streets:

Lakeside Dr., Benton Dr., Cobblestone Ct, Dove Ln, Grand Prairie Ln., Green Meadow Ln., Haystack, Hunter Dr., Ivy Path, Quail Cir., Silo Dr., White Fence Ct., Windmill Dr., Wishing Well Dr., Pebble Ln.

Rainford Dr.,Pecan Pl.,Chestnut Ct., Auburn Ln.

Rosebury Dr., Duane Dr., 82nd Ave., Newberry Ave.

Countryside Ln., Old Mill Rd., Ryeland Dr., Parkside Dr., Brickstone Dr., Timbermill Dr., Farmhouse Rd., Wheatfield Dr., Harvest Dr., and Countryside Ct.

Whenever a vehicle is parked in violation of this section, said vehicle shall be subject to being ticketed and/or towed to an off-street location or to any other portion of a street within the limits of the city where such vehicle will no longer impede the snow removal operation. The owner of said vehicle will be liable for all fines, tickets, towing and storage fees.
The residents of Frankfort Township are asked to be patient and recognize that during the winter months there may be some minor inconveniences. Snow removal procedures have been implemented to ensure a safe and expedient flow of traffic, and to increase the efficiency of the Township’s Snow Removal Team. We ask for everyone’s cooperation to help keep our streets safe.
Anyone having questions or concerns regarding the snow ban ordinance should feel free to contact the Frankfort Township Road District at 708-479-9673.

Branch pickup for the season has now ended ~ as of September 26, 2016. The new season will being Monday, May 1, 2017. We are now in the process of getting our trucks ready for leaf pickup season.

The leaf pickup program is a fall program that starts approximately mid-October, 2016 and ends with the first measurable snowfall of this year.

Please rake your leaves into piles to the road edge NOT into the ditch or in the raod. Leaves put into bags or any other type of containers WILL NOT be picked up.

There is no spring/summer pickup of leaves. You, as the homeowner, will be responsible for leaf disposal at this time of year.

Calls for branch pickup and leaf pickup is not required.

We are currently in the process of upgrading some of our roads. The road project includes various roads in Frankfort Square and is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.

Thank you for all your participation.
