In an effort to better communicate with the residents of Mantua Township, the Police Department has started using a communications system that allows residents to receive information ranging from critical alerts to community news. The system is called Nixle, and it allows residents to decide how they receive this information – by text, email, over the internet, or by mobile application. It enables the Police Department to provide timely information to residents so that they can better react to occurrences such as severe weather warnings, evacuation orders, school alerts, and other critical information. In addition, the Department can also relay other community related information such as police blotters, crime prevention tips, traffic closures, community updates, and much more. Please visit www.nixle.com for more details or to sign up. It is a free service.

Snow Ordinance

The Mantua Township Police Department would like to remind all residents that as per L.O. 143-22 there is no parking on ANY  Township Street during snow emergencies, or any snowstorm in which snow removal equipment is in use. We ask that all vehicles, portable basketball nets, boats and RV’s be removed from all highways, streets and cul-de-sacs to prevent damage and allow our Public Works Department and other government agencies to effectively plow and clear all highways, streets and cul-de-sacs within the Township safely and timely. Please keep your vehicles clear of the road until the snow has stopped, AND plows have cleared your street. Also, L.O. 350-28 prohibits the depositing of snow on any roadway within the Township either by shovel, snow blower, plow or any other means from any driveway, sidewalk or other private property onto any street within the Township.

 To ensure the safety and welfare of all residents, and to assist in the prompt clearing of snow from the roadways, the Mantua Police Department asks that all residents be mindful of these ordinances to assist in the prompt, safe and effective removal of snow from all Township Roadways.
