The Maintenance Division is the largest in the Engineer's Office. They plow and apply salt to the roadway when it snows and fix potholes and cut brush in the right of way in the warm weather months. Maintenance consists of three geographical divisions serviced by Maintenance Facilities; Eastern-located in Newtown; Central-located in the Burlington area, and Western-located just outside of Miamitown. The Engineer also operates two substations, one in Delhi Township and the other in the City of Harrison. The Hamilton County Engineer's Service Garage and the Traffic Department, in the Hartwell area, are also part of the Maintenance Division.

 Annual Inspection

The Hamilton County Engineer’s Office is responsible for clearing county roads of snow and ice.  County Engineering crews stretch budget dollars by concentrating on the maintenance of existing snow removal equipment.  Well-maintained vehicles last longer, and money not spent replacing worn out and rusting trucks can be spent on manpower and salt.

Each year one day is set aside for inspection of county snow-removal vehicles, which includes plows and front-end loaders.  The trucks are lined up and the County Engineer and other supervisory staff make the rounds to the three county maintenance division facilities.  There they check out each truck and talk with the drivers.  At this time the upcoming winter route assignments are also distributed and drivers are checked for current commercial driver licenses (CDLs).
