My mailbox was hit by a snowplow?
Occasionally, the force of snow coming off the road may break a mailbox.  If the Township broke your mailbox, we will make efforts to promptly replace your mailbox with a standard post and box.  Sometimes, however, other crews from the county, state or city may have damaged your box.  In any event, contact the Township Offices at (614) 875-2742 if your mailbox is damaged during a snow event.

When & How do you spray for mosquitoes?
The Township Service Department does mosquito-control fogging each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 9 p.m. – midnight  as this is the time frame when most of the population is indoors and mosquitoes are most active.  The Township will routinely treat the more densely populated subdivisions and rural areas.  Mosquito spraying will not take place if it is raining or if the wind speed is 10 mph or greater.  The product used by the Township (Duet by Clarke Mosquito Products) is not considered harmful to humans, however people with breathing difficulties are advised to keep their windows closed.  The Township’s equipment is calibrated by factory technicians each season, and all Township personnel are state certified applicators.  The Township also has contractual agreements in place to allow the Franklin County Board of Health to monitor, trap and treat mosquito problems that may appear in the Township.

Is leaf pickup available?
Yes, the Jackson Township Service Department schedules complimentary leaf pick up services throughout November. Exact schedules depend on weather and when leaves fall. Residents are asked to rake leaves to the edge of the road, preferably on the berm, being careful not to block storm water drainage inlets. Branches will not be accepted.
