The Utilities Department issues right-of-way permits and oversees the installation and relocation of all utilities within the right-of-way of county roads. Their work is essential to the timely construction of capital improvements and major maintenance projects, which often begin with the relocation and upgrade of water, sanitary sewer, natural gas, electricity, and communication lines. They also inspect all private development including subdivisions for county acceptance within the townships. As well as issue special hauling permits for oversized and/or overweight vehicles. For additional information, please contact Steve Buskirk, Utilities Supervisor.
