The Sunbury Street Department strives every day to meet the needs of our residents. In addition to Brad Gerwig, Supervisor, we currently have 5 full-time and 1 part-time crew member. In the last 4 years, Sunbury has actively pursued equipment upgrades. Currently we have two 2017 snow trucks and one 2003 that is still chugging along. We also have a leaf vac truck that operates in the fall saving labor costs, time, and effort by vacuuming up the leaves and keeping our storm water drains clear. With all the growth Sunbury has experienced over the past few years, the number of roads to be maintained continues to rise with currently 40 miles of asphalt. In addition to road maintenance, our crew is responsible for 60 acres of landscaping, water retention pond maintenance and so much more.
As we all know, Sunbury is a very active community--especially in the summer months. It's our street crew that prepares for all these events, maintains the flowers hanging from our light poles in the summer and is responsible for all the banners and flags.
Brad has worked as the street supervisor for Sunbury for 4 years. Born and raised in Sunbury and a graduate of Big Walnut High School, he has taken many jobs throughout his career and worked in construction across the United States. Following the road home, he now resides in Sunbury with his wife of 21 years and 2 children--a son, 21 and a daughter, 18.
