Mowing and Tree Trimming

The Township’s mowing season starts early spring and ends late fall. It is our goal to keep the rights-of-way mowed and free of litter, which will help enhance the look of our community. The Road Department will mow or trim any right-of-way that diminishes sight distance. We also trim around obstructed signs and guardrails.

Removal of Dead Animals

If you spot a dead animal on any of the Township Roads, you may call or email the Road Department. The Road Department may remove the animal or use a substance that will help increase the rate of putrefaction and help reduce the odor. Not all roads are maintained by Etna Township; please see the list of township roads located under the heading "Whose Road Is It?" in the column to the left. For a dead animal pick up on county roadways you must call the Licking County Engineer's office at (740)670-5350 and for State Routes you will need to contact ODOT at (740) 323-4400.
